The player and the artist are certainly not as difficult as the common man. They have to put their personal life aside and focus on their work. Moments of happiness have to be lost and moments of sorrow have to be forgotten and work has to be started again. Indian cricketer Hershel Patel has a similar tragedy. He had to leave the bio-bubble and run to the family.
Harshal Patel is currently playing for Royal Challengers Banglore. He had to go to his home when a match against Mumbai Indians was getting played as he lost his sister Archita Patel. In that match, Harshal Patel took two wickets.
Due to this, he missed the match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on 12 April. Harshal Patel was sorely missed by Royal Challengers Bangalore in that match. He had to face defeat by 23 runs.
Harshal Patel’s Royal Challengers return to the Bangalore Bio-Bubble. He played in the match against Delhi Capitals on 16 April and also played a key role in the team’s victory. After the win against Delhi Capitals, Harshal Patel wrote an emotional letter for his late sister on his Instagram. In the letter, the 31-year-old fast bowler recalled the moments that the two shared before the start of the IPL.
Expressing heartache on the loss of his sister, Harshal Patel wrote,
“Didi, you were the most generous and happiest person in our lives. You faced incredible difficulties with a big smile on your face till the last breath of your life. When I was with you in the hospital you told me to focus on your game and don’t worry about me. Those words were the only reason I was able to get back on the field last night.”
Further, he wrote,
‘Now that’s all I can do to remember and honor you. I will continue to do everything that will make you proud of me. I will miss you in every moment of my life, good and bad. I love you very much may your soul rest in peace.’
Along with the emotional words, Harshak shared a photo of his sister. And remember the golden moments spent with each other before the match.

It is a really sad and downhearted feeling when you lose someone close to your heart and you couldn’t do anything for them to save their life. For cricketers, it is become more difficult to handle the field and family when they are not available and their family needs them continuously. Bur Harshal did what was possible for him and we all are proud of him. The player was continuously playing well and constantly proving himself the best and brilliant in the last two games.
