"Disgusted!" Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag slam attack on Amit Bhandari

New Delhi : Indian cricketers Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag showed disappointment over the attack on Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) selector Amit Bhandari. A group of goons thrashed him during a U23 match at St Stephens College Grounds on Monday.

Amit Bhandari received multiple injuries near the head and ear. He was taken to the Sant Paramanand Hospital at Civil Lines by his friend Sukhvinder Singh. Here is how Delhi based cricketers slammed the attack on social media.

Former India opener Gautam Gambhir condemned the attack and his post read, “Disgusted to see this happen right in the heart of the Capital. This can’t slip under the carpet and I will personally ensure it doesn’t. To begin with I am calling for a life ban from all cricket for the player who orchestrated this attack post his non-selection.”

Former India opener Virender Sehwag too condemned the attack as he recommended stringest action for the culprits and his post read, “The attack on Delhi selector Amit Bhandari for not picking a player is a new low and I am hopeful that stringent action will be taken against the culprit and adequate measures will be taken to avoid such incidents.”

Current India opener Shikhar Dhawan wrote, “I can’t believe this has happened to @Amitbhandari110 bhaiya. It is sad, shocking and cowardly. This needs urgent investigation and the strictest action should be taken against the culprits.”
