Deepak Hooda has quit Baroda and will now play for Rajasthan from the upcoming domestic season. Hooda had a showdown with Krunal Pandya, the captain of the Baroda team during the last season, post which he had been suspended. Hooda had written a letter to the Baroda Cricket Association in which he mentioned that Krunal Pandya misbehaved with him. This year, Hooda cut ties with Baroda Cricket Association and spoke about this during an interview. As soon as this announcement was made, former Indian cricketer, Irfan Pathan took to social media and posted a tweet about the same.
