Indian cricketers are wearing black armbands to pay homage to Shri Vasudeo Paranjape, who served the game in various capacities. Paranjape, 82, passed away at his Mumbai residence on Monday. While he was a prolific run-getter and a fine fielder in his playing days, Paranjape left a lasting impression in his role as coach and mentor. He knew the technical and mental nuances of the sport like the back of his hand and shaped the careers of several talents propping up from the land of Mumbai and beyond.
