Former cricketer BS Chandrasekhar was admitted to a private hospital in Bengaluru after he complained of fatigue and slurring in speech, Karnataka State Cricket Association spokesperson Vinay Mruthyunjaya told ANI. The former spinner is in ICU and is stable.
“He was fine and was watching match when he suddenly complained of fatigue and slurring in speech. So we took him to the hospital. He is fine and will be back home in two days,” his wife Sandhya Chandrasekhar said.
