The world's highest wicket-taker Muttiah Muralitharan has reached Delhi and has rejoined the Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL team, his wife Madhi confirmed.
Last week, the 49-year-old former off-spinner was admitted to the Apollo Hospital in Chennai and had to undego angiography and angioplasty. Two stents were put by Dr G. Sengottuvelu.
"He is alright and doing fine. He has joined the Sun Risers Hyderabad team where he is a mentor,” she added.
Madhi could not travel to India during this crisis.
"My son is sitting for his 10th standard examination and therefore I could not be with him in this difficult times. But my mother (Dr. Nithya Ramamurthy) is there and therefore it was decided to have this treatment in Chennai,” she added.
"Murali will be travelling to Chennai before returning to Sri Lanka," Madhi added.
Dr. G. Sengottuvelu is likely to see Murali again in Chennai once Murali's IPL team SRH is finished off with all matches.
