Australia, 1/3 (AO Bureau): The difficulties have not been diminishing since the retirement of former Australian batsman Luke Pomersbach. He has been arrested by the police in connection with drugs and theft. Luke was accused of stealing jewelry, golf-related items from South Perth, Scarborough, and Woodlands areas between 24 January and 16 February this year. Apart from this, he is also accused of being involved in the drug trade. However, last week he got bail from a Perth court in this case. But due to not depositing a personal guarantee of five thousand dollars, he will have to remain in jail.
Luke has played just one T20 match for Australia. That too against New Zealand in 2007. The story of his international debut is also very interesting. Actually, Brad Hogg was supposed to play in this match against New Zealand. But he was injured just before the match. Pomerbash had reached the stadium to watch the match and was putting his car in the parking lot only to know that he had to play in this match. He then played domestic cricket for Western Australia. Pomerbash scored 15 runs on 7 balls in this match and Australia won this match. However, since then he has never been able to return to the team.
Pomerbash has played for two teams in the IPL
Apart from this, he has also played IPL. Pomerbash played the IPL from 2008 to 2013 on behalf of Kings XI Punjab (Punjab Kings) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). During this, he scored 302 runs at a strike rate of 122. However, even during the IPL, his name has been associated with controversies. He was accused of assaulting an American woman and her fiance during the IPL. In this case, he was also detained by Delhi Police. Pomerbash won the Big Bash League title in 2013, playing on behalf of the Brisbane hit. He retired from cricket in 2014 citing mental heaalth.
