ANI reported quoting Baroda Cricket Association CEO Shishir Hattangadi that Krunal has left the Baroda camp of the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy T20.

"Yes, Krunal Pandya has left the bubble. It is a personal tragedy, Baroda Cricket Association mourns this loss of Hardik and Krunal," Hattangadi said.

India captain Virat Kohli said, "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."

Himanshu had played a key role in the success of his cricketer sons.

Former India pacer Irfan Pathan took to Twitter and paid his condolences.

"Remember meeting uncle for the first time at motibagh. He was so keen for his sons to play good cricket. My condolences to You and family. May god give you strength to pass through this difficult time @krunalpandya24 @hardikpandya7,” tweeted Pathan, himself a former Baroda captain.

Krunal was leading Baroda in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in Vadodara. But Hardik opted not to take part in India's domestic T20 tournament after returning from Australia.
