Chief minister Sheila Dikshit today condoled the demise of former Indian cricket captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, describing him as one of the finest cricketers of all time.

"He was a legendary cricketer who had become captain of the Indian team at the age of 21. His contribution in taking Indian cricket to new heights will always be remembered," Dikshit said in her condolence message.

The 70-year-old cricketer breathed his last here this evening after battling a lung infection. He is survived by wife Sharmila Tagore, son Saif Ali Khan and daughters Saba Ali Khan and Soha Ali Khan.
