Surendra Puninia, Priya Punia’s father, informed a reporter that Priya’s mother Saroj had been brought to the hospital with a corona infection. Her oxygen level dropped on Monday, and she died as a result. Priya’s mother sent her a WhatsApp message the day before she died, urging her not to abandon the England tour and to join the team on Wednesday.
Priya Punia was influenced by me, according to her father Surendra. Virat Kohli had gone to play Ranji after his father’s death, he said. Let us tell you that Virat Kohli’s father, Prem Kohli on December 19th 2006, due to a heart attack. Then, Virat was playing a test match against the Karnataka team in the Ranji Trophy Super League at Feroz Shah Kotla ground.
The match started on the 17th of December and was on its third day when Virat got the news. Karnataka posted a mammoth total of 446. At the end of the second day, Delhi was 103 for 5. It was almost certain that if Virat did not return to batting on that day, then Delhi would have been defeated with follow On.
But contrary to his teammate’s expectation, Virat returned and scored 90 runs to save Delhi from follow on and defeat.
We are going through a difficult period, but we must remain mentally strong. There will be numerous times in your life when you must overcome obstacles and move forward. Priya is aware of this, and she informed me, “Papa, I am ready to represent India.”
Indian women team will tour to England in the next month where they will play a test match, 3 one day match and 3 T20I. Priya Punia is part of the test and ODI team that will play under the leadership of Mithali Raj.
Priya Punia Emotional Message For her Mother
Priya shared the news of her mother’s death on social media. ‘Today I realised why you used to advise me to be strong,’ she wrote. You knew I’d need the strength to withstand the anguish of losing you one day. I’m missing you terribly, mama. You will always be with me, no matter how far you travel. My guiding light ‘I shall always love you.’
‘It is quite tough to accept some things,’ Priya wrote. Your memories will stay with me forever. Priya also urged the public to exercise caution. All of her fans, she continued, should take measures and use masks and sanitisers. The Corona Virus is extremely harmful. ‘Maintain social distance and stay safe.’
