- Sachin Tendulkar was tested positive for Covid-19 on March 27

- The news coincided with the 10th anniversary of India's 2011 ICC World Cup triumph
Just days after testing positive for Covid-19, Sachin Tendulkar has been admitted to the hospital. The cricketing icon shared the news on social media himself. While Sachin had been exhibiting mild symptoms, the decision was taken totally out of precaution and medical advice.
It was on March 27 that Tendulkar had tested positive for Covid-19, with his participation in the Road Safety World Series being considered as the source of infection. The legendary cricketer had also confirmed that none of the members of his family had acquired the virus and it was only him whose test report came out to be positive.
While it was said that the Master Blaster had been doing fine, the rising number of Covid-19 cases and the sensitivity of the matter seems to have been the reason behind him deciding to admit himself to the hospital.
"Thank you for your wishes and prayers. As a matter of abundant precaution under medical advice, I have been hospitalised. I hope to be back home in a few days. Take care and stay safe everyone. Wishing all Indians & my teammates on the 10th anniversary of our World Cup win," he tweeted on Friday, on the 10th anniversary of India's 2011 ICC World Cup triumph.
The news of Tendulkar being hospitalised sadly comes on the occasion of India's 10th anniversary of 2011 ICC World Cup triumph. It was on this day that the MS Dhoni-led Indian team had defeated Sri Lanka in the final to lift the prestigious ODI World Cup trophy for the second time.
