India cricketer Shardul Thakur received a delighting news on Tuesday of being selected in the Test squad for the one-off game against Afghanistan. But his joy was short-lived as his parents were injured in a bike accident on the same night in Palghar. Both were rushed to the Dr Dhawale Charitable Hospital after the incident but later his father Narendra Thakur was shifted to Leelavati hospital following the detection of a brain clot. However, Shardul has rushed to visit his parents now and his participation in the next game is in doubt now.
Narendra and his wife were on their way back to home in Mahim after attending a wedding in Alyali in Palghar. Unfortunately, he didn’t see the road construction work going on near Sundaram school as the area had no streetlights and the bike skidded off as both fell on a side depression. Soon, the local people rushed the duo to the hospital and the condition of Shardul’s father is stable now.
Shifted at the right time
As soon as Narendra Thakur was treated, the ortho surgeon, Dr Prakash Gudsoorkar, detected a brain clot during a CT scan and at around 11 PM he was shifted to Leelavati Hospital for better treatment. The mother of Shardul Thakur suffered minor injuries and she has been discharged now.
“The patient is diabetic with hypertension and already had undergone two heart surgeries and suffered intracranial bleeding (intern bleeding of skull and brain) and was vomiting, hence we advised him to be shifted to the Mumbai hospital while his wife has been discharged as she suffered minor injuries,” the medico said according to Hindustan Times.
Shardul is playing for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL currently and the next match of the team is on May 11 in Jaipur. It remains to be seen if he will be available for their game against Rajasthan Royals.
