Posted on Twitter, via the audio file, the 50-year-old stated, "Hi everyone, I know everyone is concerned with what's happening. I think I extended myself a little too much in the gym this morning and felt pain in my chest so I felt best to see a doctor. I went to the hospital, I am just chilling in my hospital bed, tests have been conducted and I am watching England versus Australia and I hope Australia will be able to restrict England."

"I'll be fine soon and I am letting everyone know that I am fine and I will be back in my hotel room tomorrow," he further added. The cricketing great was admitted to Global Hospital in Parel.
