This former Indian cricketer did the winning work, donated the proceeds from IPL in the fight against Kovid-19

The BCCI decided to postpone IPL-2021 indefinitely due to increasing cases of corona. With this, all the players participating in it, the support staff and those involved in the commentary panel, returned to their homes. Former India and Bengal cricket team player Laxmiratan Shukla was also part of the IPL commentary team. After the postponement of the league, Shukla has done a winning job. He has decided to pay the entire fees from IPL commentary to the West Bengal Chief Minister Relief Fund to deal with the Corona crisis. Shukla gave information about this by tweeting.

Shukla took this decision on his birthday on Thursday. Shukla was the Sports and Youth Affairs Minister of the state from 2016 to 2021. He said goodbye to politics earlier this year. He was a Trinamool Congress MLA from Howrah North region. He has also played three ODIs for India. He has also participated in 47 IPL matches. He said, "I am happy that I am able to give the earnings from the IPL 2021 commentary on the day of my birthday for the good of the state." Whatever I am, I am because of people. If my contribution makes any difference on my birthday, I will consider myself lucky.

Many more cricketers have helped

Before Shukla, many cricketers who played in the IPL have come forward to help India in this epidemic. Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins decided to help the PM Cares Fund. Apart from them, Shikhar Dhawan, Jaidev Unadkat, Pandya brothers also announced their help. Sachin Tendulkar, Brett Lee have also helped. Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals also announced help in the fight against this epidemic.

Milkha Singh's words blew life in the career of this Indian footballer, even today we remember inspiration

Milkha Singh's words blew life in the career of this Indian footballer, even today we remember inspiration

The country lost its legendary sprinter Milkha Singh on Friday. Milkha Singh's life is an inspiration for anyone. He has set many records in his life and has set benchmarks for the people. Whatever he got from him, he used to learn something or the other. His inspirational words have the power to add to the broken courage of anyone. Something similar happened to Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, the goalkeeper of the Indian football team. Sandhu has told that the words of Milkha Singh, popularly known as Flying Sikh, inspire him even today.

Gurpreet recalled the words of Milkha Singh and told that this great sprinter told him that "You don't have to stop." Sandhu said that his advice helped him to fight the challenges during his European tenure. Veteran Milkha Singh passed away on Friday in Chandigarh due to complications related to Kovid-19. Thousands of countrymen, including players, paid tribute to him.

no substitute for hard work

Recalling the day he received the award from Milkha Singh at a function in Chandigarh in 2015, Gurpreet said, “He (Milkha) told me, “There is no substitute for hard work. I used to vomit blood several times during practice but you don't have to stop. At that time, I was playing club football in Norway with FC Stabeck, where every day was a struggle to prove myself and make it to the starting team. It was a big challenge while abroad, there were days when it was difficult to maintain my enthusiasm.

He said, "However, I myself used to remember the advice of 'Flying Sikh'. He was a great motivator and inspired me to give my all every day. The words he spoke to me are with me even today and will continue to be a great source of inspiration. His words and blessings will be with me whenever I fight for my country on the football field.

keeps the legacy alive

Gurpreet became the first Indian footballer to play in Europe's top division in 2014, representing Norway's FC Stabeck. He remained with the team until 2017 and during this time became the first Indian player to play in the Europa League (European football's second level club competition) in 2016.

Remembering Milkha Singh, who missed out on a bronze medal by a hundredth of a second at the Rome Olympics (1960), Gurpreet said, "The saga of great people and their legacy lives on forever. Milkha Singh ji and his life story have influenced billions of people in India and across the world. He may not be with us but he will continue to inspire generations to come. We all have grown up reading about him and will never forget to share the stage with him. That moment will always be close to my heart.
