Ben Stokes honours Indian doctor, wears jersey with his name

UNITED KINGDOM: England stand-in captain Ben Stokes was seen wearing training jersey with the name of Indian doctor Vikas Kumar to honour him for the fight against coronavirus.

This comes as the England Cricket Board decided to honour frontline healthcare workers who are involved in the fight against the pandemic.

Kumar, who completed his post-graduate diploma in anaesthesia from Delhi’s Maulana Azad Medical College, said, “It was overwhelming to see Stokes and others putting that message out…It’s been very difficult for all of us.”

35-year-old NHS doctor Kumar got a heart-warming video message from Stokes.

The Indian-origin doctor moved to England in 2019 along with his wife and two-year-old son.

The England cricket team wore jerseys with names of health workers as international cricket resumed in Southampton after a gap of 117 days.

Apart from Vikas, three other Indian-origin health workers, Dr. Jamasp Kaikhusroo Dastur from Norwich, and Harikrishna Shah and physiotherapist Krishan Aghada from Leicester also got their name featured in the campaign for the ongoing series against the West Indies.
