An Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Travis Keys was attacked by five or six men as he returned from a night out in Magaluf. He plays for the Bomere Heath at the Shropshire County League (SCL).

The capital of the party has been plagued quite severely in the recent times. A gang of robbers has targeted drunken tourists. As per reports, it is learnt that the gang escaped with the mobile and 20 Euros of the cricketer.

Keys had gone out to spend time with his friends at a nightclub. He left his friends in a bar and was eventually attacked as he made his way back to where he was staying. In his recent interview, he stated that he broke his jaw and arm as he was walking back when he came under savage attack.

Five or six people attacked him “

“I was walking back and what we believe has happened is five or six people rolled me. I lost five teeth, had four breaks in my jaw, a broken arm and swelling on the brain,” Keys told the media.

The 21-year-old Keys spent a couple of days in the hospital on the Island. He returned home on Thursday. He is currently recovering at home.

Keys underwent an operation at the Telford’s Princess Royal Hospital after breaking his jaw. He also showered praises on the surgeons who did an amazing job.

“Everything has gone better than planned and after an amazing job from the surgeons, I am now back to myself,” he added.


“I still face a long road of recovery. Although that will now be pain and stress-free,” Bomere Heath Cricket Club Chairman revealed.

According to Heath, Keys will miss out the action throughout the season for his club after Magaluf attack.

“He just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. He is a slightly built lad, there is no way he will play cricket again this season,” he concluded.
