Snehasish had undergone a heart procedure earlier this year and was rushed to hospital after he started vomiting.

Former India opener Sourav is currently in London for the second England- India Test match at Lord's and is said to be in constant touch with the family.

According to family sources there is 'nothing serious', and is a simple case of 'stomach infection.'

"He has a stomach infection and his COVID infection has turned negative," hospital sources said.
