I&B Minister Condoles the Death of Shri Suresh Saraiya
Minister for Information & Broadcasting, Smt. Ambika Soni has condoled the death of veteran commentator, Shri Suresh Saraiya. In her condolence message to the members of the bereaved family, Smt. Soni said:

“Suresh Saraiya was the most admired cricket commentator in English. He was a household name in cricket-crazy India. His crisp and erudite comments brought cricket closer to our homes. His understanding of the game was deep and his style of narration unique. For over four decades, Shri Saraiya commentated through AIR platform on many of the most memorable cricket matches played across the globe including four World Cups. The cricketing fraternity will sorely miss this golden voice.

I pray to God that his family gathers the necessary strength to overcome this crisis.”
