Mumbai Indians IPL player Prashant Tiwari was allegedly attacked in Ghaziabad on Thursday. He was selected as a stand-by player in the upcoming IPL matches starting soon. He was a stand-by player for Mumbai Indians in the 2018 IPL too.
He was attacked by two brothers living in his neighbourhood. They slashed his wrist of the left hand with a sharp piece of glass.
In a statement, Prashant Tiwari’s brother, Prabhat, said, “Me and my brother Prashant were having a friendly fight with each other inside our house around 4 pm after Holi celebrations. Two brothers Sanjeev and Mandeep, who live in our neighbourhood, were standing in their balcony at that time. Both of them started shouting on us and used abusive words. When we questioned, both of them, accompanied by their other family members, barged into our home and thrashed us badly,” Prabhat said while talking to a national daily.
“They vandalised the house, broke windowpanes. They slashed his wrist with the broken glass and said ab khel ke dikha,” he said.
Mumbai Indians are three-time Indian Premier League champions. Prashant Tiwari would have played for the franchise in 2018 but he suffered a shoulder injury which he sustained in a local tournament.
Prashant has been part of the Mumbai Cricket Academy and started playing cricket in 2009.
