Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar has been hospitalised after he tested positive for COVID-19 on March 27. Tendulkar confirmed the same on his official Twitter account.
“Thank you for your wishes and prayers. As a matter of abundant precaution under medical advice, I have been hospitalised. I hope to be back home in a few days. Take care and stay safe everyone, he wrote.
He also remembered India’s World Cup victory, which took place on this day 10 years ago. Tendulkar was a part of the Indian team which lifted the coveted trophy.
“Wishing all Indians & my teammates on the 10th anniversary of our World Cup win,” he further wrote in the same tweet.
Tendulkar had announced on March 27 that he had tested positive for COVID-19. In a statement, he confirmed that all the other members of his family had tested negative for the virus.
The 47-year-old legendary former batsman was recently seen in action during the Road Safety World Series, which saw a return of many former world cricket greats.
However, four members of the India Legends squad — Tendulkar, Subramaniam Badrinath, Irfan Pathan and Yusuf Pathan confirmed that they had tested positive for COVID-19 merely days after the tournament’s completion.
