Mohammad Kaif Wrote A Heart-Touching Message For Priya Punia: In 2006, the current Indian skipper Virat Kohli redefined the meaning of the word dedication, when he returned back to the field to represent the country just after the demise of his father. The Indian skipper had reportedly come back from the last rites of his father.

Now, Indian cricketer Priya Punia, who recently lost her mother, has also decided to fulfill her national duties.

On Monday, Priya Puniya, the right-handed batter who represents the Indian Women’s cricket team lost her mother due to COVID-19. Following her demise, Priya took to her social media and shared a heartfelt note in her memory along with a series of photos with her mother and her family.

Here, check out her post:

Speaking about the tragic incident, Priya Puniya’s father Surendra told the TOI, “She was doing fine, but after oxygen supply disturbance, her oxygen level dropped and had to be put on ventilator support. But we couldn’t save her.”

Furthermore, her father revealed how Priya promised him that she would not miss “professional commitment” and would represent India in their all-format tour of England. And just how she promised her father, two days after her mother’s demise, Priya on Wednesday joined the team’s bio-bubble in Mumbai ahead of the England tour saying that it was her mother’s dream that she represents the country.

Well, the elegant right-hand batter’s decision is laudable considering what she had to go through in the past three days.

Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif took to his Twitter and hailed Priya for her brave decision. He penned down a heartfelt note for Priya. He wrote:

Tough times are true test of character. All the best to @PriyaPunia6 for the tour of England as she mourns the loss of her mother. I am sure your performances in England will make her really proud. @BCCIWomen”
