"Dobal showed symptoms and was first admitted to a medical facility in Bahadurgarh, a week back. He had tested positive for COVID-19. His condition deteriorated and was shifted to a Dwarka hospital. He was given plasma but the treatment didn't work," a DDCA official said.
Coached by the renowned Tarak Sinha, Dobal used to play for the prestigious Sonnet Cricket Club, from where the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Ashish Nehra, Manoj Prabhakar, Aakash Chopra, and Rishabh Pant have evolved.
Despite playing professional cricket, he couldn't get to play First-Class cricket.
Eventually, he took up the responsibility of coaching junior cricketers.
