Disgraced India pace bowler Sreesanth was attacked with a knife while serving time in jail for his alleged involvement in the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing scandal.
According to his sister’s husband Madhu Balakrishnan, Sreesanth only revealed this when he was released.
“After he (Sreesanth) returned home following 26 days in Tihar jail in May 2013, he revealed this,” Balakrishnan said. “He told us that while he was walking inside the jail compound, a known history sheeter suddenly jumped before him, brandishing a very sharp knife.
“He (Sreesanth) reacted and in the melee, the attacker injured his hand and was taken away by the jail staff.”
