Former India captain Bishan Singh Bedi, who was known for being part of a famous spin quartet, has died at the age of 77, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) says in a statement.

Bedi claimed 266 wickets in 67 Tests, leading the team on 22 occasions after succeeding Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi as captain. He also played 10 one-day internationals, taking seven wickets.

Several cricketers from India and around the world have paid tribute to the spin wizard.


Indian Sports Minister Anurag Thakur also confirmed Bedi’s death on Monday to local media, saying: “The former captain of the Indian cricket team, Bishan Singh Bedi, is no more. This is a huge loss for cricket.”

Bedi, leg spinner Bhagwat Chandrasekhar, and off spinners Srinivas Venkataraghavan and Erapalli Prasanna were regarded as India’s most potent bowling force, often operating together on slow, turning wickets at home in the 1960s and ’70s.

Former India women’s captain Mithali Raj called Bedi the “Sardar of Spin” and said in a post on X, formerly Twitter, that he is one of “the best to have represented India.

In conclusion, Bedi was a bold and sometimes rash voice in Indian cricket, known as much for his impetuous commentary on other players as for his stellar left-arm spin.
