Kolkata: Former Bengal cricketer Murtaza Lodhgar (45) breathed his last on Friday at Vishakapatnam. The ex-left arm spinner who was the coach of the Mizoram U-19 team, died of a heart attack in the southern city where he was stationed for the Vinoo Mankad Trophy.

Murtaza played nine first-class and five List A matches for Bengal scalping 38 wickets in total.

In a condolence message, CAB President Abhishek Dalmiya wrote on Instagram, ” It’s a shocker of a news. He was a perfect example of a gentleman cricketer. A very well behaved and disciplined individual, he was doing very well as a coach. CAB is coordinating with Cricket Association of Mizoram to get his mortal remains flown to Kolkata.”
