Cricketers Hardik And Krunal Pandya’s Father Passes Away
Mumbai: Indian cricketers Hardik and Krunal Pandyas’ father, Himanshu Pandya, passed away at the age of 71 on Saturday morning due to a cardiac arrest.
Hardik, who had returned home after limited over series against Australia last month, was as home at the time of his father breathing his last. Elder brother Krunal, who was leading the Baroda team in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Trophy, has also left the tournament mid-way to reach back home.
India captain Virat Kohli and several other players of the fraternity extended condolences to Hardik and Krunal.
Heartbroken to hear about the demise of Hardik and Krunal’s dad. Spoke to him a couple of times, looked a joyful and full of life person. May his soul rest in peace. Stay strong you two. @hardikpandya7 @krunalpandya24
