The COVID-19 outburst has created a financial crunch for the sportsmen all around the globe. Now the former skipper of the Indian wheelchair cricket team Rajendra Singh Dhami is forced to take the job of a labourer during the pandemic.
Dhami has said that there were few tournaments that were scheduled to take place but have been either postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus outburst.
District magistrate Dr Vijay Kumar Jogdande though has assured some financial aid for the cricketer with immediate effect and he would be provided with the benefits under Mukhyamantri Swarojgar Yojana.
Earlier, former captain of the physically challenged India cricket team Dinesh Sain has been forced to apply for a peon’s job at the National Anti Doping Agency (NADA).
Sain also revealed that the age limit to apply for the job for the PH is 35 and this is his last chance to get a government job.
He had also accompanied the team during their 2019 tour of England. He wasn’t a part of the squad but was there to guide them. Sain says that there is a lot of talent in the country.
