A path-breaker, says SJFI

Describing Bala as one of the doyens of Indian sports journalism, SJFI said in a statement that the loss had left a vacuum in sport journalism in the country.

“Rajan Bala’s dedication and commitment to the profession was not only exemplary but path-breaking especially in cricket reporting. He brought joy and fulfilment to lakhs of readers with his lucid and simple style of writing at a time when television coverage was practically non-existent,” SJFI president S Sabanayakan said in the condolence message.
The Sports Writers Association of Bangalore and the Karnataka State Cricket Association too have condoled the death of Bala.
