Baroda captain Krunal Pandya left the team’s bio-bubble created for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy after his father passed away due to cardiac arrest on Saturday.

“This is a personal loss for him and he had to leave the bio-bubble,” Baroda Cricket Association CEO Shishir Hattangadi told Sportstar.

The all-rounder will no longer be available in the ongoing T20 tournament. Pandya has played three matches so far in the tournament. Last week, the captain found himself in middle of a controversy after vice-captain Deepak Hooda left the bubble after a spat.
