India cricketers Hardik and Krunal Pandya lost their father, Himanshu Pandya, on Saturday morning after he suffered a cardiac arrest.

Krunal, who is with the Baroda team for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in Vadodara, has left the bio-secure bubble to be with his family.

“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.

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.

“Whenever I speak about Hardik and Krunal, I cannot control my tears and that they have done so well is God’s gift. Our intentions of letting them play cricket from a very young age was questioned and criticized by many relatives. But we were not willing to change our plans, and it is great to see what they have achieved now,” Himanshu Pandya had told MI TV in an interview.
