A 46-year-old former Ranji collapsed on a ground while playing a local tournament in town in South on Sunday afternoon and died soon at a local hospital, organisers of the tourney said.

The deceased had scored 30 runs and was at the non-striker's end, when he collapsed, Poorv Bhembre, of the Club, which had organised the tournament, told IANS over phone.

After he collapsed, Ghodge was immediately shifted to the nearby ESI hospital, from where he was shifted to a private health facility in town, located 30 km south of Panaji, before he was declared dead, the said.

The deceased was also the honourary joint of the tournament organising club.

Bhembre said that Ghodge, who has played two Ranji matches for and represented the state in several one-day matches in the 1990s, had no history of medical issues.

"He used to play almost everyday. We are completely shocked with what has happened today," Bhembre said.
