Angad Bedi shared a heartfelt post for his father and former legendary Indian cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi, who died on Monday. Known as country's greatest ever left-arm spinner, he died after a prolonged illness in Delhi. He was 77 years old. The funeral of the cricket icon will be held at 2 PM in Delhi.
Angad penned an emotional note on Instagram stating:
Isn't it completely in Dad's character to bowl us over with the ultimate spin ball, one that even we never saw coming.
While we are in shock and overcome with grief, we find solace in knowing that he lived a rich, fearless and full life that inspired many. We are moved by each and every message of love we have received, publicly and personally. Thank you to everyone for celebrating his grit, humour and giant heart. It is heartwarming to see how many generations Dad inspired through his life. Every day of his life was spent in devotion to his family and faith, and in service to his Waheguru. He epitomised living a life that was Nirbhau-Nirvair and we are comforted in knowing that he is with His Beloved now.
Dad, we were blessed to have you as our fearless leader. We will strive to live by your motto - to observe and absorb. Keep guiding us from the great beyond.
In love and faith Anju Bedi, Angad, Neha Mehr, Guriq, Neha, Gautam, Suhavi.
