India’s legendry cricket captain Kapil Dev has been admitted to a hospital in Delhi after complaining of uneasiness.
Dev felt unwell on Thursday following which he was rushed to a hospital in Delhi, Indian Cricketers Association (ICA) president Ashok Malhotra said on Friday.
“He is feeling okay now. I just spoke to his wife (Romi). He was feeling uneasy yesterday. He is undergoing check-ups at a hospital as we speak,” Malhotra, also a former Test player, said.
Unverified reports, however, stated that the 1983 World Cup winner had undergone an angioplasty after suffering a heart attack.
“Wishing you a speedy recovery @therealkapildev sir. Strength always,” India batsman Shikhar Dhawan said in a tweet.
Kapil Dev, who is the first World Cup-winning cricket captain from India, played 131 Tests and 225 ODIs.
He is the only player in cricket’s history to claim over 400 wickets (434) and accumulate more than 5000 runs in Tests.
