Luke Wright, the England and Pune Warriors allrounder, fears he could be down with dengue. Wright, who has played just one game for Warriors this season, has undergone blood tests to check for the condition. Wright is currently in England - he had gone back home to attend a family funeral - and was due to fly back to India for Warriors' game against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday.

Wright conceded 24 runs in two overs in the only game he's played this season, against Delhi Daredevils. He was picked up by Warriors in March, following an impressive stint with Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash and with Impi in South Africa's MiWay Twenty20 competition.

    Man, I got dengue in Trinidad last month when there for the Aus v WI test series. It is pretty darn painful. Like a knife inside ur head behind the eyes trying to push out through said eyes. Your whole body is aching like nothing you have ever felt before. It's hard to walk and talk let alone twitter

    Thankfully,It's doubtful Wright has dengue fever - I had it once,and if Wright has it he'd know all about it,it's excruciatingly painful.Possibly some other bug he picked up just by being abroad,it's more common than people think to do so in any foreign country away from home and food and liquid intake you're accustomed to.

    Why is everyone being so defensive of India when I foreign player notes such issues? The fact remains that our country hasn't got rid of majority of viruses especially mosquito related!

    Foreigners are highly prone to such viruses as their immune system isn't used to it as ours - the guy just tweeted what he is suffering from, let us all just wish him a GET WELL SOON.

    Its just sad that we take things so personally. There's no allegation or blame being made out - he's just saying he may have contracted dengue in India and is hoping to get well soon.

    @Ketan Naik we don't have dengue in England. The types of mosquitoes that spread it aren't found here because our climate isn't suitable for them. Nobody is "blaming" India though. It's just one of those unfortunate things that can happen. Hope he makes a a quick and full recovery.

    Don't come to India if you have such concerns. Period.
