No one is close to you in a bio-safe environment. Other players in the team (Mandeep) are also increasingly affected.
He said the kind of innings he has played has made everyone emotional. He is going through a difficult period. He made his father proud of the way he was at the crease and came back to finish the match and he would be proud of himself. Let us tell you that Mandeep Singh took the field against Kolkata two days after his father's death.
