Baroda has suspended all-rounder Deepak Hooda for the remainder of the domestic season on grounds of indiscipline. The choice was taken by the Baroda Cricket Association apex council.
On the eve of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, Hooda left the Baroda bio-bubble after an alleged spat with captain Krunal Pandya.
“The apex council determined to not take into account him for your entire domestic season as he had introduced disrepute to the game and the association,” BCA secretary Ajit Lele instructed
The BCA had sought clarifications from each Pandya in addition to head coach and the staff supervisor. Earlier, the BCA CEO, Shishir Hattangadi, had even warned Hooda of disciplinary motion. In his letter, a few weeks in the past, Hattangadi said that he would communicate to the BCCI and Kings XI Punjab – the IPL franchise, which Hooda represents. However, Kings XI Punjab has determined to retain the all-rounder.
Explaining his facet of the story, Hooda had written a letter explaining no matter had occurred between him and Pandya on the eve of Baroda’s opening fixture in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Final week, former India worldwide and considered one of Baroda’s former captains, Irfan Pathan, had requested the BCA to deal with the problem Baroda suspends all-rounder Deepak Hooda for domestic season 2021 sincerely and urged them to hearken to either side of the story earlier than taking a call.
