Bishan Singh Bedi back home after spending 3 weeks in hospital | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Legendary former Indian spinner Bishan Singh Bedi has been released after spending nearly three weeks in a city hospital following bypass surgery.
The 74-year-old former Indian captain had bypass surgery at Sir Gangaram Hospital in the capital last month after complaining of heart problems.
He then underwent an operation to remove the clots in his brain.
Bedi has recovered significantly and was discharged from the hospital on Thursday evening, according to a close friend and former Delhi captain.
“He was discharged yesterday after doctors found him fit enough to go home. He was advised to rest completely,” the source told PTI.
Bedi, a leading Orthodox left arm weirdo in his active days, represented India in 67 tests and 10 ODIs between 1967 and 1979, scalping 266 and seven wickets, respectively.
In December last year, he protested the Delhi and District Cricket Association’s (DDCA) decision to name the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium after its late ex-president and former union minister, Arun Jaitley.
Bedi had requested that his name be removed from a stand named after him if Jaitley’s statue was to be put up. He had threatened to take legal action against the DDCA on the matter.
