Former India pacer Amit Bhandari was on Monday assaulted by a group of unidentified men during the Under-23 team’s trials at St Stephen’s ground.
Amit Bhandari is currently the chairman of the DDCA senior selection committee. Bhandari sustained injuries on head and ear and was taken to Sant Paramanand Hospital at Civil Lines by his colleague Sukhvinder Singh. The goons fled the spot before the police could reach.
Delhi & Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) president Rajat Sharma said that the guilty will be booked soon. “We are trying to procure all details of the incident. As far as I have come to know, it is regarding one disgruntled player, who didn’t make it to the probables list for the National U-23 tournament,” he said.
