Chetan Chauhan, Former Indian Cricketer, Critic of Life Support | Cricket news

NEW DELHI: The health condition of former India starter Chetan Chauhan, who tested positive for COVID-19 last month, has worsened after he developed multi-organ failure and is now on respiratory support at a medical center in Gurugram.
Chauhan, 73, who is also a cabinet minister in the government of Uttar Pradesh, was admitted to the Sanjay Gandhi PGI Hospital in Lucknow after testing positive for COVID-19 on July 12.
His condition did not improve and after other complications appeared, he was transferred to Medanta at Gurugram.
“Early today in the morning, Chetan ji had kidney failure and subsequently multi-organ failure. He is currently on life support. We are all praying for him to win this battle,” said a senior DDCA official, who is aware of the development, he told PTI on Saturday.
Chauhan, who had played 40 tests for India, had been the legendary Sunil Gavaskar’s oldest opening partner.
He has served in the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) in various capacities: President, Vice President, Secretary and Head of Selection, as well as being the manager of the Indian team during their tour of Australia.
