It is always sad to see such incidents in any sport. The fans too appreciate what the cricketers go through to make a name for themselves. It is not always easy to be a cricketer. Some times people tend to take that for granted. The best of players go through their daily share of struggles to make it big.
Often, fans feel it is easy to be a cricketer. They cross limits while criticizing players who fail to perform. The game and the fame attached to it can take their toll on players and their mental health. The fans need to appreciate these things more than they do at times. Once again, a player has passed away and the fans could see how the game can have its toll.
