Pant, who is currently recovering from injuries he sustained in a car accident, said Sonnet Cricket Club had played a big part in the development of his cricketing career and was a home for budding cricketers.

“It is so disheartening to see my club which has produced so many international cricketers over the years and continues to do so, received an expulsion notice. It has played a major role in shaping my career cricket and many more like me. It’s like a home for all of us,” Pant tweeted.

“We have always followed the rules established by the college. I would like to ask the governing bodies of Venkateshwara College to reconsider this as Sonnet club is not just a club, it is like a heritage institution and a home for so many aspiring cricketers,” he added .

Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra also came to support the club.

“It was a brutal shock. Sonnet Cricket Club is an institution that has worked tirelessly in the service of Indian cricket for decades. Over a dozen international cricketers. Countless top class cricketers. I would ask humbly to Venkateshwara College, Delhi to reconsider their decision to evacuate us,” Chopra tweeted.
