Former India batsman recuperating under home isolation
Sachin Tendulkar, who used to be hospitalised as a precautionary measure after testing positive for COVID-19, used to be on Thursday discharged and is now recuperating in home isolation in Mumbai.
Tendulkar, who will turn 48 this month, confirmed the development through a tweet. “I have just come home from the hospital and will remain lonely while continuing to rest and recover,” he wrote. “I want to thank everyone for all of the good wishes and prayers. Truly appreciate it.”
“I remain ever grateful to all of the medical staff who took such good care of me and have been working tirelessly for over a year in such difficult circumstances.
Tendulkar used to be hospitalised on April 2 as a precautionary measure after testing positive. At the time, all his other members of the family had tested negative.
In March, Tendulkar used to be a part of the Road Safety World Series Challenge in Raipur, a veterans’ tournament that featured retired players from India, Sri Lanka, West Indies, South Africa and England.
A week after Tendulkar led India Legends to the title, he used to be among four players – Irfan and Yusuf Pathan and S Badrinath – to test positive. Badrinath, too, like Tendulkar, recently tweeted approximately testing negative and resuming work as a commentator for IPL 2021.
