New Delhi, Feb 11 (UNI) Former India speedster Amit Bhandari and now chairman of selectors for Delhi senior and Under-23 teams on Monday was attacked by men during a practice match here and has been admitted to hospital.
Bhandari, who suffered head and ear injuries, was watching a selection trials match with two other selectors at the St Stephen's Cricket Ground for practice matches among senior Twenty20 probables. He was later taken to Sant Parmanand Hospital in Civil Lines here.
