South African bowler Mondli Khumalo in serious condition after being attacked outside a British pub

Former South African Under-19 bowler Mondli Khumalo is in an induced coma in Bristol after being attacked outside a pub in Bridgwater on Saturday night. Khumalo suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and has undergone two operations so far. He remains in serious condition. A 27-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident.

Khumalo, 20, is under contract with Kwa-Zulu Natal Inland in South Africa and is on his first overseas stint as a professional with North Petherton Cricket Club. The team was celebrating a victory last weekend when the incident happened. ESPNcricinfo understands Khumalo was unconscious at the scene and received emergency medical treatment at Southmead Hospital. It is not yet known what Khumalo’s long-term prognosis is.

The North Petherton Cricket Club and Khumalo’s agent, Rob Humphries, started helping the Khumalo family, especially Mondli’s mother, get passports to travel to the UK to be with him. “Mondli is such a nice guy. Her mom just can’t understand how something like this could have happened to her,” Humphries told ESPNcricinfo. “And everyone in North Petherton loves it. He is a really adorable child. He was having a great time here. He had played very well and he had become such a wonderful part of the club.

Khumalo represented South Africa U-19 at the 2020 World Cup, has four first class caps and received a high performance contract from Kwa-Zulu Natal Inland for the 2022-23 season.

Although Khumalo’s medical expenses while in hospital are covered, it is unclear if he will need additional care in the future. North Petherton has set up a crowdfunding page in their name to help out in any way needed.
