India allrounders Hardik and Krunal Pandya have lost their father Himanshu, who died on Saturday after suffering a heart attack. He was 71.
Krunal, who was leading Baroda in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, left the team's bio-bubble to be with his family, Baroda Cricket Association secretary Ajit Lele told PTI. Hardik is not playing the tournament as he is preparing for the white-ball series against England. He has also left Mumbai, where he was training, to go to Vadodara.
Himanshu had played a key role in the success of his sons, who have represented India and the Mumbai Indians in the IPL. Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar led the cricketing fraternity in condoling his demise.
Irfan Pathan and his brother Yusuf, both former India and Baroda players, also expressed their condolences.
Krunal scored a match-winning 76 off 42 in their opening game against Uttarakhand and has also taken four wickets in the first three games. Kedar Devdhar, who led Baroda in their fixture against Maharashtra on Saturday in Vadodara, will continue to captain the side.
