After failing to register a win, Pathan was unceremoniously dropped as Baroda Ranji team captain after playing just two matches in the beginning of the season.
Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) selection committee named Deepak Hooda as the new captain.
Left-arm batsman Pathan has been through many ups and downs in his career. He is not playing for Indian team for past five years and was also ignored at the IPL auction of 2017.
