Hardik, Krunal Pandya’s father passes away due to cardiac arrest


Surat: India all-rounder Hardik Pandya and his brother Krunal’s father Himanshu Pandya passed away on Saturday (January 16). Baroda skipper Krunal has left the bio-bubble created for Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy in Vadodara.

Krunal has left the bubble in order to be with his family and as a result, he would not be playing for Baroda in the ongoing Domestic T20 tournament.

“Yes, Krunal Pandya has left the bubble. It is a personal tragedy, Baroda Cricket Association mourns this loss of Hardik and Krunal,” Baroda Cricket Association CEO Shishir Hattangadi told ANI.

Krunal has played three matches so far in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament, managing to take four wickets. In the first match against Uttarakhand, Krunal also managed to score 76 runs for Baroda.

Baroda have so far won all their three matches in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. The side is at the top of Elite Group C. Hardik is not playing the national T20 tournament as he is preparing for the white-ball series against England. Both Krunal and Hardik play together for the Mumbai Indians franchise in the Indian Premier League.
