Touching moment before BBL clash

The Hobart Hurricanes has offered a reminder that cricket is a global community with the side pausing before the clash against the Perth Scorchers to remember the life of Kundan Singh, a Nepalese cricketer who passed away in recent days.

Singh was just 25 but was forced to receive dialysis after both his kidneys failed before he contracted and recovered from COVID-19.

But the damage to his kidney was too great and he was unable to afford a kidney transplant according to the ICC.

While he only played domestically in Nepal, Hurricanes star and Nepalese international Sandeep Lamichhane was quick to Tweet his condolences.

Shocked to hear about untimely demise of Kundan Singh. Gone too soon. May his departed soul rest in peace. May God give strength to his family.?

Lamichhane's teammates gathered together and remembered the young star before the start of play in Perth.
