Vinod Kambli, a former India cricketer, was arrested for drunk driving and smashing a car in Bandra; he was released on bail.

Vinod Kambli, one of India’s most famous cricketers in the 1990s, was arrested on February 27, 2022, Sunday, for drunk driving and smashing his car into the gate of a Bandra society.


Following a complaint from a Bandra society member, Vinod Kambli, 50, was arrested. He was prosecuted under section r.w. 185 of the Motor Vehicle Act of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) (driving under the influence of alcohol). At the Bandra Police Station, he was apprehended and questioned.


According to PTI sources, Kambli was eventually released on bond, but it was then revealed that, in addition to the disruption he created, he also allegedly argued with the complex’s watchman and some residents after the incident.


Kambli was one of the most skilled and naturally gifted batters who trained under renowned instructor Ramakant Achrekar, who has also helped Sachin Tendulkar improve his game. In reality, Tendulkar and Kambli became famous in their school days after combining for 664 runs for Sharda Ashram versus St. Xaviers School.


Kambli smashed a six off the first ball he faced in the Ranji Trophy. In 1991 and 1992, he made his One Day International and Test debuts, respectively, and he also played in the 1992 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
