Former India quick David Johnson dies at 52

Former India cricketer David Johnson passed away at the age of 52 on Wednesday.

Johnson was a former right-arm fast bowler who played in two Test matches for Team India in 1996, where he managed to take three wickets.

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary Jay Shah expressed condolences on Thursday over the demise of David Johnson.

“Deepest condolences to the family and friends of our former Indian fast bowler David Johnson. His contributions to the game will always be remembered,” Jay Shah wrote on X.

Former Indian cricketers Gautam Gambhir and Anil Kumble also expressed their sadness on X.

“Saddened by the passing away of David Johnson. May God give strength to his family and loved ones,” Gambhir wrote on X.

“Saddened to hear about the passing of my cricketing colleague David Johnson. Heartfelt condolences to his family. Gone too soon, ‘Benny’,” Kumble wrote on X.

Johnson snapped 125 wickets with a strike rate of 47.4 and an average of 28.63 in 39 games during his first-class cricket career. Despite being a lower-order batsman most of the time, he had scored a century in first-class cricket.

The former bowler bagged 41 wickets in 33 List A matches. In 2015, he played his final competitive match in the Karnataka Premier League.
