The fast bowler’s parents – father Narendra Thakur and mother Hansa Thakur – were heading towards Mahim village in Palghar, located about 115 kms from Mumbai, when the motorcycle on which they were travelling on skidded off the Kelwa-Mahim road on Tuesday night, an official at the Palghar police station said.

Some repair work was underway on the road where they met with the accident, he added.

The couple sustained injuries in the mishap, the official said, adding that they were rushed to a hospital where their condition was reported to be out of danger.

“We are yet to record their statements as they are undergoing treatment,” the police official said.
