Vinod Kambli made an excellent start to his international career for team India. Some fans also termed him as a better technical and stylish batter than the legend, Sachin Tendulkar. In the first seven Test matches, he smashed 793 runs at an average of 113.29. But, it was his lifestyle that distracted him from the roots of cricket.

However, now, he got involved in an unwanted situation as his wife has registered an FIR against the former cricketer for allegedly assaulting and abusing her in an inebriated state. She registered the FIR at the Bandra police station in Mumbai. His wife, Andrea Hewitt alleged that Vinod Kambli verbally abused and thrashed her. 

Vinod Kambli was a full-of-life character during his playing days for team India 

Even, the former cricketer was in a drunken state. According to reports, this unwanted situation occurred at his home in Bandra, Mumbai. Andrea Hewitt also suffered a head injury as Vinod Kambli allegedly threw the handle of a cooking pan at her. Currently, she went to the Bhabha Hospital for a medical examination and no arrest has been so far made in relation to this incident. Speaking about Vinod Kambli’s overall career for team India, he played 17 Tests where he scored 1084 runs in 21 innings, at an average of 54.20. He also managed four centuries and three fifties during his short career in the longest format of the game.

Apart from that, he played 104 ODIs for the Men in Blue. In 97 innings, Vinod Kambli scored 2477 runs, at an average of 32.59. Meanwhile, earlier in an interview with Mid-Day, Kambli said that his only source of income is a pension from the Indian Cricket Board. But, he is willing to work on cricket-related assignments to run his family. He said: “I am a retired cricketer, who is completely dependent on the pension from the Indian Cricket Board. My only payment [source of income] at the moment is from the Board, for which I am really thankful and grateful. It takes care of my family.” Meanwhile, reports came out that a businessman offered him a job with a monthly salary of Rs 1 Lakh. However, this job is not for any cricket-related stuff. He will be serving the finance division of Sahyadri Industry Group which will be based in Mumbai. But, now, fans are quite shocked to see him getting involved in such an incident with his wife.
