Battling for life at a Kolkata hospital, Keshri showed signs of improvement till Sunday. But situations went out of control after he suffered a massive cardiac arrest Monday morning that led to his death. Saddest part of his depature is that the 20-year-old right-handed batsman was not even the part of ‘playing XI’ and was a substitute during fielding. In an attempt to take a catch, his collision with left-arm pacer Sourav Mondal turned fatal for Keshri.

Everyone was highly concerned post seeing blood spurting from his mouth. The impact of collision was too strong that he felt unconscious. None anticipated it is going to be his final stint on the ground. It is not the first time when any cricketer died of injuries received during the play. Demise of Phillips Hughes is still fresh in mind. Ankit Keshri’s sudden death has left a gap that can’t be filled as he was a player who believed in keeping the calm and accomplishing his tasks with hundred percent efforts. Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Anil Kumble and many other eminent personalities took to Twitter to express their shock and condole the death of Keshri, who was on the way to turn his dream to be a great cricketer into reality.
