New Delhi, Dec 12 (IANS) The Indian cricket board Wednesday condoled the death of famous Ranji cricketer B.B. Nimbalkar, who passed away Tuesday at age 93 due to age-related ailments in Kolhapur.

"Bhausaheb Nimbalkar was an outstanding batsman, who averaged 57 in first-class cricket. He still holds the record for the highest individual score by an Indian in first-class cricket - 443 not out for Maharashtra against Kathiawar in 1948-49. After his retirement, he was a source of inspiration to budding cricketers," board secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a statement.

"The BCCI honoured him with the Col. C.K. Nayudu Lifetime Achievement Award, for his contribution to the sport, in 2002. On behalf of the Board, I extend my condolences to his family. May his soul rest in peace," he added.
