Mumbai: The name Vasoo Paranjape immediately sparks utmost reverence. One of the most loved and respected teachers of the game of cricket in India, Paranjape (82) passed away on Monday. The BCCI in an official statement has sent its condolences to the bereaved family.

“With his excellent grasp of the game, he shaped the careers of several Mumbai and India stalwarts. Equipped with technical nuances, Shri Paranjape used his man-management skills to great effect. He was appointed a Director of Coaching in the ‘80s by the Board and was a Head Coach of camps for junior cricketers. Paranjape was also among the first set of coaches when the National Cricket Academy was inaugurated in 2000,” the statement read.

Added BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly, “I vividly remember my conversations with Vasoo Sir. Not only was he a terrific coach with an eye for detail, but he was blessed with an amazing sense of humour. There was never a dull moment as he would regale us with fascinating stories of cricketers, whom we looked up to while growing up. He has played a stellar role from behind the scenes in nurturing cricketers, who have served Indian Cricket with distinction. My sincere condolences to Jatin and the entire Paranjape family.”

Jay Shah, Secretary, BCCI said, “Throughout his career, Shri Vasoo Paranjape Ji moulded the careers of countless cricketers through his in-depth understanding of the game and man-management skills. He made them fearless. A man with a vision, he was always ahead of his time. My condolences to his son Jatin and the rest of the family members in this hour of grief.”
