R.I.P. Dicky Rutnagar

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

One of the finest AIR cricket commentators and sports journalists of the recent era, Dicky Rutnagar is no more. He passed away in London. He was 82.
Dicky had covered 300 tests during his fabulous career. His association with All India Radio spread over several decades. He will always be remembered for the role he played as an AIR cricket commentator. AIR cricket commentary is an eternal magic and he was a big part of it.

Genial Rutnagar had seen the best and worst of Indian cricket  in a bygone era.        

I also had the great pleasure of listening to his commentary in my early days, and he was one of my most favourite cricket commentators. With his death, a son of the broadcasting medium has set. It is very sad that the present media has forgotten his contribution to the world of cricket, and have even failed to report on his demise.

This is certainly a very sad and tragic moment for his family.

May his soul rest in peace.
