Member of Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) senior selection committee Amit Bhandari, on Monday, was assaulted by goons during the under-23 team selection at St Stephen’s College ground. Bhandari sustained injuries on his head and ear and was immediately rushed to Sant Paramanand Hospital at Civil Lines by his colleague Sukhvinder Singh. The act was condemned by former Delhi cricketer Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and present Indian cricketer Shikhar Dhawan.
Gambhir was left furious with the incident and said that he ensure that the incident “can’t slip under the carpet.” He tweeted: “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.”

That this happened to @Amitbhandari110 during @delhi_cricket Syed Mushtaq Ali trials when entire Delhi probables -40 of them along with support staff and management was there says a lot about the brashness and audacity of goons to attack him in front of so many.
