The wife of late Chetan Chauhan, Anita Chauhan, has recently donated more than 200 bats, which is autographed by Chetan Chauhan as well, for a charity. She has given to an Australian organisation named Grassroots Cricket, which has been working not only in Australia but in the world too for the underprivileged children.
“I was thinking where I could give these bats and for a good cause, for the children and for the underprivileged. Watching Channel Seven news, I saw something about Grassroots Cricket. I googled that, saw the telephone number and then got in touch with them,” Anita Chauhan, who was Chauhan’s first wife, said to IndianLink.
However, Anita lives in Adelaide and she has also donated a bat signed by all the Indian players who featured in the first Test between India and Australia recently. Meanwhile, the bat had the autograph of Chauhan at the top. Notably, Australia successfully bundled out India inside three days, winning the game by eight wickets as well.
“I think they rose to the occassion and showed that even in defeat they were looking at the brighter side of things. That was a good gesture. I think they have risen above everything and are looking to make a new beginning,” she said while applauding the team. “I think they will do well in the next Test (at the MCG from December 26).”
However, that signed bat has also been donated to the Grassroots Cricket and it will be auctioned by them and the funds which will be raised, use for the charity as well.
The second Test between Australia and India will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne and it is slated to take place from December 26.
