The hot-headed Praveen Kumar assaulted a doctor in MeerutNew Delhi: Praveen Kumar, an upcoming all-rounder, has been accused of assaulting a doctor of a local medical college in Meerut on Thursday night, according to reports by a private news channel.

The alleged incident took place when Dr Shantanu reportedly splashed through slush on PL Sharma Road, dirtying Praveen's clothes who was on his way from a shop after buying firearms. Enraged Praveen got into a scuffle with the doctor and bashed him up.

The doctor claimed that Praveen was drunk at the time of the incident.

The jurisdictional police spoke to the cricketer and doc and sorted out the matter. No complaint was registered.

Praveen's action might lead to stringent measures from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Praveen might be charged under clause 3 of misdemeanour by the BCCI, claim the reports.

The 21-year-old, a bowling all-rounder from a small town in Western UP, has potential to become an important part of India's one-day squad. He should avoid such unruly behaviours in future which can terminate his fledgling career abruptly.
