ESPNcricinfo staff

Joginder Sharma, the Haryana and Chennai Super Kings allrounder, was in a road accident in Delhi this morning but is now stable. He had sustained a head injury in the accident, which required surgery.

Anirudh Chaudhry, the Haryana Cricket Association secretary, confirmed on Twitter that Joginder was on the mend. "He [Joginder] is out of danger and our [HCA's] physio met him and spoke to him post-surgery," he tweeted.

Joginder was on the way back from a session with acupuncture specialist Jatin Chaudhry, when a vehicle rammed into his car. He is currently admitted at the Balaji Action Hospital in Paschim Vihar, Delhi.

An allrounder, Joginder was part of India's 2007 World Twenty20-winning team. Bowling the last over in the final, he claimed the wicket of Pakistan's Misbah-ul-Haq to seal a five-run win for India. He has also played four one-dayers for India, but has not been in the national XI since 2007. He has played 59 first-class games for Haryana and Tripura so far, averaging 27.58 with the bat and 20.64 the ball.
