If Death Comes, It Will Not Leave Cricket: 83-Year-Old Alex Steele Will Not Let Oxygen Hinder His Wicket-Keeping! We all love watching young guns smash boundaries in cricket, but have you ever seen an 83-year-old playing with an oxygen tank strapped to his back? Yep, you read that right! Meet Alex Steel, the grandpa who’s redefining cricket passion and inspiring everyone online.

From Pro To Oxygen:

Born in Scotland way back in 1941, Alex actually played for the Scottish team back in the 70s. He wasn’t just any player – he smashed over 600 runs and even snagged a few cool half-centuries as a batsman, not to mention his skills behind the stumps with 13 catches!

But life threw him a curveball in 2020. A rare lung disease forced him to rely on an oxygen tank, and doctors weren’t too optimistic, giving him just 1-5 years.

Game On, No Matter What:

But Alex wasn’t about to give up on life, or cricket for that matter! He defied the odds and kept playing. A video of him wicketkeeping with the oxygen tank strapped on went viral, leaving everyone speechless. As Alex himself says, “Illness only wins when you let it.” Talk about fighting spirit!
