Mumbai Indians and India all-rounder Krunal Pandya has decided to step down as Baroda captain after the team’s poor campaign in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.  Ajit Lele of Baroda Cricket Association said that Krunal conveyed his decision to the state body on Friday but did not give any reason for leaving the team’s leadership role.  Lele said, ‘He will be available as a player.  He has informed the Board President about his decision.  His successor will be named after the selectors meeting tomorrow. The 30-year-old has played five ODIs and 19 T20Is for India.

 Kedar Deodhar will be the biggest contender for the captain’s post for the Vijay Hazare Trophy that begins next month.  Baroda finished at the bottom of Group B with four points in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy with one win and four losses.

Possibly Krunal’s reason could be Baroda’s above poor performance in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy

 Indian Premier League (EPL) regular Deepak Hooda left the Baroda team last year accusing Krunal of misbehavior.  He now plays for Rajasthan.
