Former Indian Cricketer David Johnson Dies in Tragic Fall from Apartment Balcony

Former Indian cricketer David Johnson, aged 52, tragically passed away after falling from the balcony of his apartment in Kanaka Sri Layout, Kothanur. The incident, which occurred while his family members were present, has prompted a police investigation to determine whether it was a suicide. Reports suggest Johnson had been struggling with depression and health issues recently.

Johnson, who ran a cricket academy in his hometown, leaves behind a wife and two children. He was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital after falling from the fourth floor. His sudden demise has sparked an outpouring of grief from the cricketing community in India, with players like Anil Kumble and Gautam Gambhir expressing their condolences.

“Saddened to hear the passing of my cricketing colleague David Johnson. Heartfelt condolences to his family. Gone too soon ‘Benny’!” wrote Anil Kumble.

“Saddened by the passing away of David Johnson. May god give strength to his family and loved ones,” added Gautam Gambhir.

“Deepest condolences to the family and friends of our former Indian fast bowler David Johnson. His contributions to the game will always be remembered,” stated BCCI secretary Jay Shah.

David Johnson made his debut in red-ball cricket against Australia in Delhi in 1996 and later played a single Test match during a tour of South Africa. In his career, he claimed 125 wickets in 39 first-class matches and also scored a century despite being primarily a lower-order batsman.
