Renowned cricket coach Tarak Sinha succumbed to cancer in New Delhi on Saturday. He was 71.
He was suffering from the disease for a while, and recently, he had a multi-organ failure.
Sinha has trained players across generations. The Sonnet Club, where he operated, acted as Delhi’s supply line. He identified talent and turned them into international cricketers.
His impressive student list includes Surender Khanna, Randhir Singh, Raman Lamba, Manoj Prabhakar, Ajay Sharma, K. P. Bhaskar, Atul Wassan, Ashish Nehra, Sanjeev Sharma, Aakash Chopra, Shikhar Dhawan, Anjum Chopra and Rishabh Pant.
He is the fifth cricket coach, after Desh Prem Azad, Gurcharan Singh, Ramakant Achrekar and Sunita Sharma, to get the Dronacharya award.
