The 30-year-old has played five ODIs and 19 T20s for India.

India and Mumbai Indians all-rounder Krunal Pandya has stepped down as Baroda captain following the team’s underwhelming campaign in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Baroda Cricket Association’s Ajit Lele told PTI that Krunal communicated his decision to the State body on Friday but did not give any reason for leaving the leadership role. “He will remain available as a player. He communicated his decision to the president. His successor will be named after the selectors’ meeting tomorrow,” said Lele.
