Former Indian cricketer Vinod Kambli was arrested by the Bandra Police on Sunday (February 27) on charges of drunk driving. He also smashed his car into the gate of a Bandra society.

The former cricketer was arrested following a complaint from a resident of the said Bandra society. He was charged under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) section r.w. 185 of the Motor Vehicle Act (driving under the influence of alcohol). Vinod Kambli was taken into custody and examined at the Bandra Police Station.

However, he was later released on bail, a report in PTI suggested. Apart from crashing into the society gate, Kambli also allegedly argued with the complex’s watchman and some residents after the incident.

Meanwhile, it was his attitude towards life that came between his success and talent. Despite being massively talented, Vinod Kambli failed to reach the top. He made his One Day International and Test debuts in 1991 and 1992, respectively, and also featured in the 1992 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

He was the first Indian batter to score back-to-back double centuries when he made 224 against England in Wankhede in 1993 and then smashed 227 against Zimbabwe in his next Test match. However, his Test career was over before he turned 25, making 1084 runs in 17 matches with 4 centuries and 3 half-centuries.

Vinod Kambli carried on playing ODI cricket for India, featuring in the 1996 World Cup, scoring a century against Zimbabwe in Kanpur. He 2477 runs in 104 matches with 2 centuries and 14 half-centuries.
