Senior India women's cricketer Veda Krishnamurthy, who lost both her mother and sister to Covid-19, has been a crestfallen figure. She has penned an emotional tribute on her social media accounts, expressing her love for her mother and sister - two backbones of her life.

"To my beautiful Amma and Akka. The last few days have been very heartbreaking to all of us at home. You both for the foundation of our house never imagined it would be seeing this day knowing that you both are not with me, it breaks my heart. 

“Amma, you have made a brave child, taught me to be as practical as I can in every situation the trait is obviously passed on by you. You are the most beautiful, happy, selfless person I ever knew. Akka, I know I was your most favourite person. You are a fighter, having inspired me to never let go till the last minute," Veda wrote.



Her mother died on April 23 in Bengaluru and two weeks later, her sister Vatsala Shivakumar, who was admitted to a hospital in Chikmagalur, Karnataka due to Covid-19 complications, breathed her last. The incident naturally had a devastating impact on the Indian cricketer as he urged everyone to stay home to fight this deadly virus.

"You were those two people who found joy in everything I did, everything I said I always had a very big ego that I have two mothers but guess ego is never too good for anyone. The last few days I spent with you both was so relaxing and we were also happy to never imagine that would be our last," she added.

“My world has just gone upside down after you both left me. Not sure how vs family are going to regroup. All I can say is that I love you both so very much and will miss you both. Thanks to all the love I received. In the end I would like to urge people to please follow the Covid rules and take precautions, this virus is very dangerous my family did everything right but still virus found its way. My heart goes to everyone else going through the same situation as mine. Stay safe! Stay strong," she concluded.
