Former Saurashtra coach and manager Hasmukhbhai Joshi passed on Thursday. The Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) made the announcement of the 85-year-old’s demise. The audience popularly knew Hasmukhbhai as ‘Bababhai’ in cricketing circles.
Bababhai had also published a book. The book’s name was “Old Ranji Trophy Players of the Period 1963 to 1969 – my teammates and intimates.”
Niranjan Shah, former Secretary of the BCCI and SCA, conveyed heartfelt sympathies on Joshi’s demise.
“Bababhai was the man with quality, ethics and great cricketing capabilities,” he said.
