Chandra Nayudu Had More Knowledge Than Us Players: Edulji
Former India women's team captain Diana Edulji, who met her back in the 1970s said she was very knowledgeable about the game.
"I met her in the early 1970s when we had gone to play a women's national tournament in Indore. I found her to be very fond of cricket, especially women's cricket. She used to come and meet us and be with us (even though women never played at the main stadium). She had great knowledge of the game even in those days," Edulji told IANS.
"In those days, in the 1970s, to have that much knowledge - even we as players, we didn't have that much knowledge. We were just playing the game. We rarely realized what was happening around the world. That was her baby because she came from a cricketing family. She saw it upfront. It is a loss," added Edulji.
Chandra was the youngest of the three daughters of Col C.K. Nayudu from his first wife. Since she had no children as she never married, her final rites were performed by her nephew.
