Former Bengal Under-19 cricket captain Ankit Kesri, who sustained a head injury in an on-field collision during a local game, died at a private city nursing home in Kolkata on Monday. Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) treasurer Biswarup Dey said the 20-year-old promising East Bengal player was injured on Friday in a collision with another fielder while taking a catch during a senior knockout match against Bhowanipore.

Kesri was given mouth-to-mouth resuscitation by another cricketer, S.S. Singh, and then examined by a doctor before being rushed to a private hospital in an ambulance stationed at the Jadavpur University stadium.

The opening batsman, who was also a member of the Under-23 Bengal squad this year, passed away this morning following a massive heart attack, a CAB official said. Ankit’s father Raj Kumar Kesri alleged his son had to be shifted to the nursing home in central Kolkata following the instructions given by a CAB official.
