Vinod Kambli, the 42-year-old former Indian cricketer and batsman, suffered a heart attack, according to unconfirmed agency reports.
He has been admitted to the Lilavati Hospital in Mumbai for care. Kambli, a one time fast friend of recently retired cricket superstar Sachin Tendulkar, was missing from the party thrown by Tendulkar after his retirement.
Vinod Kambli is known to have said a number of times early in his career that while Sachin Tendulkar 'took the escalator' to fame and fortune, Kambli himself 'took the stairs'.
Kambli hasn't over the years—since he last played international cricket at 28, going out with a Test average of 54—bothered to address his equally remarkable and rapid descent into obscurity. But he emergedto sound off against Tendulkar, accusing the maestro of ignoring him in his farewell speech at the Wankhede, and of not inviting him to the grand goodbye party that was the talk of the town.
"Him not mentioning me in his farewell speech or not giving me an invitation though I've been a part of his life since he was 10 years old. Yes, I won't deny the fact that it did hurt me a lot because he forgot to mention that. The world record partnership was a turning point of our career, without each other's contribution, I wouldn't be who I am, and he wouldn't be our great legend," Kambli told Indian Express.
The left-handed batsman played 17 Tests and 104 ODIs for India. He retired from international cricket in 2009, and from first-class cricket in 2011.
