Saif’s father passes away

The Legendary Indian cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi passed away on Thursday after battling a severe lung infection. The cricketer was earlier this week admitted post being diagnosed with a lung disease; however today’s hospital bulletin reported that Pataudi’s condition was critical.

Apparently, Pataudi’s condition deteriorated since yesterday as he was unable to maintain the oxygen level despite maximum treatment. Though he continued to remain in the ICU and a close watch was being kept on him, Pataudi’s condition took a turn for the worse.

Post diagnosis, the cricketer was found to be suffering from interstitial lung disease, a condition in which the passage of oxygen to the two lungs is less than normal.

Pataudi, regarded as one of the finest Indian cricket captains, played 46 Tests for the country, scoring 2,793 runs for an average of 34.91 with an unbeaten 203 being his highest score.

Bollywood Hungama sends out heartfelt condolences to Pataudi’s family.
