But you must have noticed as soon as the match starts that Indian players are playing with black bands. In fact, Team India has worn a black band on the arm in honor of Milkha Singh, a former Indian sprinter and popularly known as ‘Flying Sikh’. Milkha Singh died on Friday night after battling corona infection. Padmashree Milkha Singh was 91 years old.
After the start of the title match, BCCI also gave information in this regard on its official Twitter account. BCCI wrote, ‘Team India is playing in black bands in honor of Milkha Singh, who passed away due to Corona.’ After the BCCI tweet, cricket fans are paying tribute to Milkha Singh in their own style in the comment box. While some are praising Team India for this step, some remember the glorious career of the former runner. At the same time, many said that Indians should always remain united like this.

His best performance, however, was at the 1960 Rome Olympics in which he finished fourth in the 400 m final. However, he regretted missing out on a medal at the Rome Olympics. The bronze medalist’s time in this race was 45.5 and Milkha finished the race in 45.6 seconds. He also represented India in 1956 and 1964 Olympics. He dominated the track and field event for over a decade. His speed was in the world.
