India A and U-19 Trainer Rajesh Sawant Found Dead In His Hotel Room
Sunday morning started with a sad news as India A and U-19 trainer Rajesh Sawant was found dead in his hotel room ahead of India U-19 team’s match against England in Mumbai on Monday.
When Sawant did not report for the team’s training in the morning, his room at the team hotel was checked and he was found dead, reportedly in his sleep. Talking about the incident Amitabh Choudhary, BCCI’s Joint Secretary said:
“What I have gathered so far is he did not report for team activities in the morning, so people started looking for him and eventually he was found to have been passed away in his room. I have asked Prof (Ratnakar) Shetty to visit the site and keep me updated.”
However, the reason of his death hasn’t been found out and as per reports, it seems to be a heart attack.
The trainer had been a part of the Afghanistan coaching staff in past. He also worked with India A team that played the England XI in the two List A matches earlier this month. Sawant had also trained the Rest of India’s side that took on Ranji Trophy champions Gujarat in Irani Cup. The ROI won the game by six wickets.
