Find out why the Indian team wore black armbands in the T20 World Cup match against Namibia

Players from the Indian cricket team took to the field in their final T20 World Cup match against Namibia on Monday wearing black armbands honoring the famous coach Tarak Sinha. Sinha passed away last week.

Sinha is credited with having produced some of the best cricketers in India, including current wicket-keeper batsmen Rishabh Pant, Shikhar Dhawan and former pacemaker Ashish Nehra.

“The Indian cricket team today donned a black armband to pay tribute to the Dronacharya award winner and highly respected coach Tarak Sinha, who passed away on Saturday,” said a statement released by BCCI (Cricket Board of India).

Sinha died on Saturday after a prolonged illness. He was 71 years old. Sinha was a father figure in the famous Sonnet Club in Delhi, which produced many great players in the country. His disciples like Surinder Khanna, Manoj Prabhakar, the late Raman Lamba, Ajay Sharma, Atul Vasan, and Sanjeev Sharma ruled Delhi cricket and also played for India.
