India’s first woman cricket commentator, Chandra Nayudu handed away in Indore on Sunday.

Renowned cricket commentator Sushil Doshi mentioned from Indore: “The solely remorse Col Nayudu had was that he had no cash to get Chandra married. Chandra was an excellent Hindi commentator. She was an English instructor however had equal command over our nationwide language.
“Like her father, she wished to be the first to do one thing. She inherited a few of her father’s traits.  Chandra was a really courageous and brave woman. She would by no means settle for defeat simply in her life,” mentioned Doshi who thought-about Chandra as his elder sister.
“I used to be impressed by her in my commentary profession. When I used to be travelling to Australia (in 1977-78) for commentary, she dropped me off the airport. My mother and father had been very anxious about my first abroad journey and Chandra used to maintain them firm.”
Chandra was bed-ridden in her previous couple of days. Her monetary situation was very poor. Sadly, the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association or the BCCI couldn’t assist her,” added Doshi.
