Former India Test cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar on June 4, 2014, lost his mother, who passed away in a local hospital where she had been admitted a fortnight ago. Rekha Manjrekar (81) was in the hospital for treatment of age-related ailments.

 

“She was admitted to the Hinduja Hospital 15 days ago and died today [Wednesday]. The last rites were performed by Sanjay,” said a source.

 

Rekha was the wife of Vijay Manjrekar, former middle-order batsman and mainstay of the Indian Test team. He died in 1983, aged 52. She is survived by son Sanjay, who is now a TV commentator, and two married daughters.
