Former India middle order batsman Vinod Kambli suffered a heart attack in Mumbai this morning.

He was admitted to the Lilavati hospital. The heart attack occurred while he was driving from Chembur to Bandra.

Kambli had previously undergone angioplasty in July last year. 

The flashy Mumbaikar played 17 Tests for India and averaged 54.20, which incidentally is higher than the average of his childhood friend Sachin Tendulkar.

His average in first class cricket is also impressive at 59.67.

Kambli had a longer career in the shorter format of the game, playing 104 ODIs and averaging 32.59.
