Rajesh Chauhan, the former Indian offspinner, has been injured in a road accident n Chhattisgarh, television reports claim. The accident took place at Gundardehi in Durg district when a speeding vehicle hit the car in which Chauhan was travelling.
He was admitted to the Jawaharlal Nehru Hospital in Bhilai, in central India, and was being monitored in the ICU. His condition has been described as stable.
"Chauhan is out of danger," a Bhilai Steel Plant - Chauhan's employers - official told IANS. "He probably has multiple fractures and has also received some serious bruises on his hand, leg, back and head. A team of doctors is examining his condition."
Chauhan, 40, played 21 Tests and 35 one-day internationals from 1993 to 1998. While his performances were far from head-turning, India lost none of the 21 Tests in which he played. He is perhaps remembered most for his last-over six off Saqlain Mushtaq at Karachi in 1997, which sealed a four-wicket win for India.
