B Vijayakrishna, the former Karnataka all-rounder cricketer, has died.



Due to health problems, the former Karnataka all-rounder was taken to the hospital two days ago and passed away on Thursday morning.

B Vijayakrishna, a veteran Karnataka cricketer, died of multiple organ failure and cardiac arrest in a private hospital here on Thursday, according to family sources. He had died at the age of 71 years. Vijayakrishna played in 80 first-class matches throughout his 15-year career, claiming 194 wickets and collecting 2,297 runs, including two centuries.

Many of Karnataka's triumphs in the 1970s and early 1980s were aided by the left-handed batsman and spinner. In the 1970s, he was a key member of Karnataka's first Ranji Trophy win.

Viji, born on 12 October 1949, started her career under the supervision of famous cricketer K Nagabhushan in the 1960s as he was lovingly addressed by family members and cricketer friends. In his first maiden Ranji Trophy, Vijayakrishna made a mark against Hyderabad in 1968, taking three wickets and shining with a six-winded train at his next encounter against an old Madras. He was just like a batsman, his friends remember.

  Karnataka Chief Minister, Yediyurappa said in a statement, "In his 15-year career as an allrounder, he played 80 first-class matches in which he scored over 2,000 runs and took 194 wickets. In his death, we have lost a great cricketer. May his soul rest in peace,"

Sunil JoshiJoshi the former India cricketer writes on Twitter:"..sad news.! I had great memories & had the honour to bowl along with him and learned a lot of knowledge playing with him".

"He was a wonderful cricketer for Karnataka and a very nice human, I have lost my pal."
