Legendary Indian spinner Bishan Singh Bedi passes away at 77

Amritsar, 23/10: Former India captain and country’s greatest ever left-arm spinner Bishan Singh Bedi died on Monday after prolonged illness.


He was 77 years old and is survived by his wife Anju, son Angad and daughter Neha. Born in Amritsar in 1946, Bedi played 67 Tests for India and took 266 wickets with 14 five wicket hauls and one 10-wicket haul.
