Cricket selector beaten up by player who was not selected

Former India pace bowler Amit Bhandari is currently the District Cricket Association chairman of senior selection committee.   On Monday afternoon the trails of the under 23 team was being held at the St. Stephens Ground in Delhi.  Suddenly Amit Bhandari was attacked by goons who were carrying iron rods, hockey sticks and other weapons.  The badly injured selector was rushed to the Sant Paramanand Hospital for treatment.  A player who was not selected is suspected to be behind the attack and police are investigating.

Amit Bhandari's Delhi team-mate Virender Sehwag has stated "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."

Gautham Gambhir too has blasted "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.
