India Women batter Veda Krishnamurthy, who lost her sister and mother to Covid-19 recently, has thanked BCCI and its secretary Jay Shah for checking on her and extending support in these “unprecedented times”.

The flamboyant middle-order India batter lost her elder sister Vatsala Shivakumar to COVID-19, two weeks after her mother succumbed to the dreaded virus. On expected lines, she was not included in the Indian Test and ODI team for next month’s tour of the United Kingdom.

“Have been tough last month for me and family and I’d like to sincerely thank the @BCCI & Mr @jayshah sir for calling me few days back and extending support in these unprecedented times. Many thanks sir @BCCIWomen,” Veda Krishnamurthy tweeted.

Earlier, former Australia Women cricketer Lisa Sthalekar slammed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for giving cold shoulder to Veda Krishnamurthy, saying the board did not check on Veda after the twin tragedies in her family.

Sthalekar, the first player to achieve the double of 1000 runs and 100 wickets in women’s One-Day Internationals, felt the time has come for a player” association for the Indian women’s team.

“Whilst not selecting Veda for the upcoming series may be justified from their point of view, what angers me the most is that as a contracted player she has not received any communication from BCCI, just to even check how she is coping,” Sthalekar had said in a note on her Twitter handle.
