Medium pacer Joginder Sharma, who became an instant hero for India in the final of the inaugural World T20 tournament in 2007, suffered serious injuries in a road accident in the Dwarka area of South West Delhi on Thursday morning. His condition was cited as stable by doctors.
Joginder became a household name after he dismissed Pakistan’s Misbah-ul Haq in the last over of the World T20 final to fashion India’s victory, but did not get the chance to play for India again. He represented Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League.
Joginder’s Swift Dezire car rammed into a call centre cab, a Tavera, from behind. There were two occupants in Sharma’s car, cops said. The incident took place around 4 am near the underpass of the Sector 21 metro station in the area. Cops said both cars had entered Dwarka from the Dwarka-Kapashera stretch from the NH-8 side, with Sharma’s car behind the Tavera.
The driver of the Tavera SUV slowed down at a speed breaker but Sharma’s driver could not slow down in time, leading to the accident. The front portion of the Swift was smashed completely in the impact.
“We came to know about the accident around 4 pm. A case of accident has been registered and we are further investigating the matter. Culpability will be decided once we record the statements of both the parties and examine the case,” said a senior police officer.
