Sonnet Cricket Club got served notice, Pant comes in to support

Rishabh Pant

Sonnet Cricket Club is one of the best cricket academies in Delhi. This club has given India many cricketers including India’s wicketkeeping batsman Rishabh Pant. Many players of this club play in domestic matches and perform very well. Venkateshwara College has served notice for the club to move away the base from their place. Pant wants the college to rethink on the decision they made on the club.

Pant on Sonnet Cricket Club

“It is so disheartening to see my club that has produced so many international cricketers over the years and continues to do so has been served an eviction notice. It played a major role in shaping my cricketing career and many more like me. This is like a home for all of us,” Pant tweeted.

He further added that

We have always followed the rules set by the college. I would like to request the governing bodies of Venkateshwara College to reconsider this as Sonnet club is not just a club, it’s like a heritage institution and a home for so many budding cricketers,”

The former Indian Cricketker Aakash Chopra tweeted that

“This has come as a rude shock. Sonnet Cricket Club is an institution that’s worked tirelessly in the service of Indian cricket for decades. Over a dozen International cricketers. Countless first-class cricketers. I’d humbly request Venkateshwara College in Delhi to reconsider their decision to evacuate us,” Chopra tweeted.

However, Pant is now started his rehab after his accident that happened while travelling back to home after the tour.
