Former Vidarbha captain Telang passes away
Nagpur: Former Vidarbha captain Vijay Telang has passed away aged 61, following a brief illness.
Telang, who died yesterday, played first-class cricket between 1970-86, scored 2724 runs in 50 games and also took seven wickets.
In April 2012, Telang took over as coach of the Vidarbha Ranji side, after having coached the Under-16 and Under-19 teams for Vidarbha.
