Deval Sahay – the Ranchi-based mentor of former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has returned home on Friday. He came back after spending 40 days in two hospitals where he was in the ventilator and treated several ailments like deficiency of sodium, deficiency of potassium, urine infection, low oxygen, accumulation of carbon dioxide in body, lungs infection due to pneumonia attack, bed shore as well as COVID-19.


Sahay had played an important role in Dhoni’s career in initial days by giving him turf pitches at the Central Coalfields Limited (CCL) to play on in Ranchi as well. However, for his treatment, he was first admitted to the Jagannath Hospital, where he was in the ventilator but after his test result came out positive for COVID-19 there, he was shifted to the Medica Speciality Hospital for the treatment.

“He has returned home, but he is very, very weak. He has to get back his strength and everything. By God’s grace, he is doing well otherwise,” Sahay’s wife Meena said to IANS from Ranchi.


“He was shifted to the Medica Speciality Hospital from the Jagannath Hospital because of Covid-19 — one of the hazards of going to a hospital these days. He was shifted to a room in Medica, and he is much better now. He is such a great fighter and that was proved again during his illness,” she further added.

Notably, when was hired by Sahay in the Research and Development (SAIL) in 1997-98, only Mecon used to have turf pitches in Ranchi where his father used to work and the pitches were made under Sahay’s supervision. Later, when he joined CCL, he made turf pitches there as well and brought MS Dhoni to CCL, where his game became more better. Meanwhile, his character was seen in Dhoni’s biopic, “M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story”.

Apart from his relatives and friends, many well-wishers and Ranchi-based cricketers whom he mentored at the CCL, came to visit him in the hospitals as well.
