Life is indeed very wonderful and we should always appreciate it. We should always count every blessing because we never know when they shall be taken away. The rich sports history of India is really making everyone feel proud but is never full of red stains. A Misplaced wire, a misplaced step or even a misjudgment can even take away the life of flexible athletes too. We would like to honour Vishal Kumar Verma, who just passed away and all the other Three Indian Sports stars who have lost their lives on the field. Here are the Four Indian Athletes Who Lost Their Lives In Sports Tragedies.

Raman Lamba was one of the iconic youths when he started playing cricket and scored a century and two fifties against Australia. However, a tragic incident happened with him on February 20, 1998, when he started playing in Dhaka's Premiere League.
He was fielding in the short fine leg position when the batsman hit the ball hard which smashed his forehead. The ball deflected directly to the wicketkeeper and he was declared out. However, Raman Lamba was still able to pick himself up and went straight to the dressing room. He was admitted directly to the hospital but he survived for only three days more.
