All-rounder Deepak Hooda has decided to part his ways from the Baroda Ranji team and he will now feature for Rajasthan in the upcoming season. Earlier this year, Hooda got involved in a tussle with Krunal Pandya after which the former was suspended Hooda for a whole season on disciplinary grounds by the Baroda team. Six months from there, now Deepak Hooda has chosen to exit the stateside ahead of the 2021-22 season that will start from October.

After this move of Deepak Hooda, many cricketers and fans have pointed it as a big blow for the Baroda team. Hooda has been representing the side since the year 2013, ever since he was 17 years old and thus his exit from the side has hit the cricket on-lookers hard. Hooda, however, has obtained a No-Objection Certificate from the state board to join the Rajasthan team.

The fans have reacted to this news by expressing their anger towards Krunal Pandya, who they think is the reason behind this. Twitter has been flooded with tweets against Krunal for his unacceptable behavior.

Deepak Hooda leaving Baroda cricket is a huge loss: Irfan Pathan

Along with many who are putting up their thoughts on Hooda deciding to walk away from the Baroda team, Irfan Pathan has expressed his disappointment. The presence of potential players in any domestic team is a feather in their cap as it helps the side to be dominant in the domestic arena. The former Indian cricketer took it to Twitter to question the state association while asserting his dismay.

After having played for a team for so long, it is certain that the players share a bond with the side. Opening up about it Hooda thus stated that he feels equally sad but would back his decision to be the right one. “It is definitely a sad feeling to quit Baroda, for whom I have played throughout my career. But I spoke to my coaches, well-wishers and thought this was the right decision for me,” Hooda told Sportstar.

He will now be seen playing in the second half of the IPL for the Punjab Kings. In the tournament so far he has looked decent with the bat and would be keen to take it further.
