Former India disabled cricket team captain Subhash Chikane, 59, who led from the front to beat their England counterparts 3-0 in an ODI series in 2002, lost his battle with Covid-19 at a Kalyan hospital on Wednesday.

Subhash Chikane lost his mother Rukhmini, 96, on Tuesday. She had succumbed to the pandemic as well. 

Subhash Chikane, an all-rounder, used to bowl medium pace with his only hand (right) and was well known for his big-hitting prowess.

He captained the Indian team against England for the LIC Trophy in which the hosts thrashed their opponents in Mumbai, Delhi and Lucknow. 

Subhash Chikane was rewarded the Man of the Series award for his all-round performance.

The passing away of Chikane was also a shocker for Ashok Bhole, 53, who was India’s wicketkeeper-batsman in the 2002 series. “It’s so sad. Subhash and I played a lot of cricket together. We will miss him,” Bhole told mid-day.com on Wednesday.   

Subhash Chikane represented Tata in cricket, kabaddi and carrom, playing with abled sportsmen. Recalling Chikane’s fighting approach, his cricket teammate at Tata, Pradeep Raut recalled: “We were playing an inter-division match at Parsee Gymkhana around 15 years ago. Subhash came in to bat at a crucial phase when team needed six runs in a couple of balls. He hit a straight six over the sightscreen with his one hand against an able fast bowler.”
