Former India seamer Irfan Pathan has reacted to the fall out incident between Barod captain Krunal Pandya and all-rounder Deepak Hooda.
Earlier, Hooda had written to the Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) to inform them about his unavailability because captain Krunal Pandya had repeatedly abused him in front of other players and stopped him from training.
Patha said, “during the difficult times of this pandemic wherein mental health of a player is of utmost importance as they have to stay in a bio-bubble as well as keep themselves focused on the game.”
In a mail sent to BCA, which was accessed by The Indian Express, Hooda made a series of allegations against Pandya.
“At this moment, I am demoralised, depressed and under pressure. As from last some days and at least from last couple of days, my team captain Mr Kurnal Pandiya is using abusing language to me in front of my teammates and also other states teams who have come for participation at Reliance stadium Vadodara,” Hooda wrote.
