Legendary spinner Bishan Singh Bedi is recovering well after undergoing a surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain.

The 74-year-old former India captain had undergone bypass surgery at the hospital in New Delhi last month after he complained of heart problems. He underwent the procedure in his brain just after the bypass surgery.

"He had the blood clot (in his brain) removed six days back, just after the bypass surgery. He is recovering well and will be shifted to a private cabin by tomorrow (Thursday)," a source close to Bedi told PTI.


Two foreigners in PSL test positive for COVID-19

England batsman Tom Banton is one of two foreign cricketers who tested positive for COVID-19 in the ongoing Pakistan Super League.

Pakistan Cricket Board's Director of Media Sami Burney had announced on Tuesday that two foreign players and one member of the support staff had tested positive for the virus. This was after Australian leg-spinner Fawad Ahmed tested positive on Monday.

'Unfortunately, I received a positive COVID-19 test yesterday and I am now isolating and following the PSL protocols. Fortunately, I am feeling OK so far,' Banton tweeted.

'I have been well looked after by the PCB and Quetta Gladiators,' added the 22-year-old who has played six ODIs and nine T20 International matches for England.

'Out of the three positive results, one player belongs to Islamabad and the remaining to two other franchises,' the PCB official had said, adding that the PSL would continue as per schedule.
