Himachal Pradesh Cricket Team’s right-arm medium pacer Siddharth Sharma bid adieu to the World on 12th January. The Cricketer was on a Ventilator for the last 2 weeks when he was with his team for the Ranji Trophy 2022-23. The pacer recently had taken a five-wicket haul against the Bengal.
The bowler was a part of the Vijay Hazare Trophy triumph where he provided crucial breakthroughs to his team. He made his first-class debut in 2017 and had taken 25 wickets in 6 matches and was considered to be an exciting prospect for Indian cricket.

Huge Loss for Himachal Pradesh Cricket
In a short span of time, the pacer was an integral part of the side. He was not only taking wickets but had a pretty good economy rate where he made the batters work hard for runs. The Himachal Pradesh’s next match is against Nagaland on 17th January.
The Cricketer was cremated at Bhabhor Saheb crematorium on January 13 (Friday). He was in Gujarat with his team-mates for the match but didn’t take part due to bad illness. He was the go to bowler for the captain as his contribution to the Himachal Pradesh Cricket was invaluable.
