Hasmukhbhai Joshi passes away at the age of 85

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 Joshi served cricket of Saurashtra in many capacities; as a player, selector of Under 16, Under 19, Under 22, umpire, coach and as a manager,” the SCA said in media statement.

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.
