ESPNcricinfo staff

Former India batsman Vinod Kambli has been hospitalised in Mumbai after pain in his chest. He was driving home from Chembur, a suburb in the city, when he felt the pain and was taken to a hospital by a police officer. His condition is stable now. Kambli, 41, had also undergone angioplasty on two blocked arteries in 2012.

Kambli played 17 Tests and 104 ODIs for India. He scored 1084 runs in Tests, including two back-to-back double-hundreds, at an average of 54.20 and 2477 runs in ODIs, with two centuries. He played his last international match in 2000 and retired from first-class cricket in 2011.

    kambli ....another talented batsman from mumbai kept out of the indian team intentionally after playing just 17 tests so that he doesnt outshine tendulkar....very sad....

    Whether Tendulkar invited Vinod Kambli to the party is a moot point, and should be off limits for the public to know or to discuss. Hypothetically, do you invite every single person that you know to a party that you throw up ? You only invite a set of people who are close to you, and ignore the others (call them acquaintances). Also what does the public know about the personal relationship between Tendulkar and Kambli ? And how does it matter to them ? May be they do not get along well, may be Tendulkar invited Kambli but Kambli could not attend, may be they are simply out of touch with each could be anything. Time to move on. And here's wishing Vinod Kambli a speedy recovery and a long and healthy life.

    Get well soon, Vinod, look forward to see you fully recovered. Sad to see that SRT didn't invite VK to his farewell party at the end of the Mumbai Test. It just didn't feel right. Sad.
