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 other........it 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.

  • OttawaRocks on November 29, 2013, 17:26 GMT

    If he's just 41 and has experienced heart issues already I wonder if he's been paying attention to diet and exercise in recent years. Nonetheless, best wishes.

    Wishing a speedy recovery to the great daring cricketer, who hits the ball out of the ground on his debut match, infact the first ball of his first class career...Though always in controversy, he was meant to be great as the Little Master, beyond doubt, ofcourse if he would have managed his career professionally...He didnt find Mark (Mascarenhas)...

  • Diaz54 on November 29, 2013, 10:10 GMT

    Fine balance between great success and failure. His records says a lot. Sad really. Wish him best recovery....Riaz from the other side.

  • mano.mcse on November 29, 2013, 9:30 GMT

    Oh sad new. wish him speed recovering...what a player he is..

  • Jalz007 on November 29, 2013, 9:10 GMT

    Hope he recovers quickly....Apart from whatever shortfalls he had in cricket, its immaterial now.Its only humane that we wish him fast recovery. Hope to see him hale & hearty.

    Don't club his cricketing talent and health. Let us wish him fast recovery and a very long life. When it comes to batting, he is another Brijesh Patel, Mankad, P. Sarma, A. Malhotra-- domestic heros and international zeros, particularly when it comes to fast bowling.

  • sevugapandian on November 29, 2013, 7:35 GMT

    What a great player??India missed him lot, they gave more importance to his mate sachin, he is one of the finest cricket player, he can play the short balls nicely, nice to see that.

  • sevugapandian on November 29, 2013, 7:33 GMT

    I wish him to recover asap.
