Nagpur police executed a non-bailable arrest warrant against former cricketer Prashant Vaidya in a cheque bouncing case on Wednesday.

 Vaidya played four One Day Internationals for India in the mid-1990s. As per reports, he was produced before a court which released him on a surety bond.

Vaidya had allegedly purchased steel from a local trader and issued a cheque which bounced. Following the development, the trader demanded that he should make fresh payment.

The cricketer allegedly refused to pay and as a result the trader moved the court which issued an NBW against him for skipping court hearings.

Vaidya currently heads the cricket development committee of the Vidarbha Cricket Association. Vaidya was also associated with the Mumbai Indians as a talent scout for MI junior. During his playing days, Vaidya was a right-arm fast bowler who represented Vidarbha and Bengal. 

Vaidya picked up four wickets in as many ODIs during his short international career. He picked up 171 wickets in 56 first-class matches in his domestic career.
