Bangalore: The Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) on Tuesday condoled the death of its newly-elected president Srikantadatta Narasimharaaja Wadiyar here Tuesday.
Wadiyar was earlier this month elected president for the second time -- his first stint being during 2007-10 -- with former India batsman Brijesh Patel as his secretary.
“He was a very happy man when we won the recently concluded elections. He had definite plans for the next three years and was very keen to start implementing them at the earliest.
“This is really unfortunate. Our thoughts are with the family as of now,” said Brijesh Patel in a statement issued by the KSCA.
Wadiyar, scion of the erstwhile Mysore royal family, died following massive cardiac arrest at a private hospital here Tuesday.
