Former Test cricketer Hanumant Singh is ailing. He has been admitted to the Breach Candy hospital in Mumbai.
Singh, 67, was hospitalised following dengue fever on Monday. He also developed a liver dysfunction, diagnosed as hepatitis B, following which he was shifted to the Intensive Critical Unit (ICU).
The hospital management told the Hindustan Times that Singh was recovering.
"His condition is stable," Dr Geeta Koppikar, medical director of Breach Candy Hospital, said on Thursday. "He is much better now."
Singh, who scored a century on Test debut — against England in Delhi, represented India in 14 Tests between 1964 and 1969. He tallied 686 runs at an average of 31.18, including a ton and five fifties.
After his retirement, apart from grooming youngsters, Singh had a successful stint as an International Cricket Council (ICC) Match Referee. He was the director of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) when it was launched in Bangalore in 2000.
