Coach Narayan Satham of cricketer Irfan Pathan has died in Vadodara.

Sunday afternoon, 73-year-old cricket coach and former Baroda Ranji player Narayan Satham passed away at his residence in Vadodara.

After his retirement, the former all-rounder became a coach at the Sangramsinh Gaekwad cricket academy. He was recognised for both his sense of humour and his discipline. Satham was Kiran More and Irfan Pathan’s coach.

In the 1970s and 1980s, Satham was one of the most successful all-rounders for Baroda, despite never making the India Test team. From 1968 through 1985, Satham represented Baroda in the Ranji Trophy. He also played for the West Zone in the Duleep Trophy, sharing the locker room with Ajit Wadekar, Sunil Gavaskar, and Ashok Mankad. During his 84-match first-class career, Satham amassed a total of 3,119 runs and 193 wickets.

Kiran More came to Twitter to express his sorrow about the death of Satham, stating, “Today is a very terrible day for me. The passing of my mentor, coach, and Guru, Narayan Rao Satham. He was the sole reason for my accomplishments to date. I will miss him, and this is a significant loss for Baroda.”

Satham leaves behind a wife and a son.
