What happened

Praveen Kumar, the former India swing bowler, and his son magically escaped without injuries when his SUV collided with a trailer truck in Meerut, where he is based, on Tuesday night.

“It could have been a lot worse. By the grace of god, we are okay and I am talking to you,” he told PTI.

“I had gone to drop my nephew, but a massive truck hit my car from behind around 9.30pm. Thank god it [his] was a big car, else there could have been injuries.

“I initially thought just the bumper would be broken but the car is badly damaged.”

Praveen’s cricket career

Praveen, 36, played six Tests, 68 ODIs, and ten T20Is between 2007 and 2012, picking up 27, 77, and eight wickets in the three formats respectively.

He decided to leave the game in October 2028 at 32.

He played a crucial role to India’s title win in the ODI tri-series in Australia 2008, also involving Sri Lanka. After dismissing Adam Gilchrist and Ricky Ponting in successive overs in the first final, he claimed 4 for 46 in the second final to help India defend 258 and seal the series.

He now runs a real-estate business and a restaurant back home in Meerut.
