In an unexpected turn of events, Indian cricketer Mayank Agarwal found himself in a health scare that left fans and teammates worried. The Karnataka captain, unwittingly consumed a liquid from a pouch, believing it to be water, before the flight from Tripura.
Complaints of stomach pain forced Agarwal to deboard the flight, leading to an official complaint from his team, alleging foul play. The incident prompted a swift response from the local authorities, with Agarwal being rushed to a nearby hospital.
Providing a personal update on Instagram, Mayank assured everyone that he was on the road to recovery. “I am feeling better now. Gearing to comeback. Thank you for prayers, love and support, everyone,” he shared.
Well-wishes poured in from various quarters, including veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan, Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty, and sports presenter Sanjana Ganesan. Agarwal expressed gratitude for the support he received during this unexpected health scare.
The circumstances leading to the health scare were peculiar. Agarwal, thinking the liquid in the pouch was water, experienced a sudden burning sensation in his mouth. The manager promptly complained, and the matter was under investigation by the NCCPS (New Capital Complex Police Station).
Health authorities in Tripura have confirmed that Agarwal is out of danger, with stable vitals. The cricketer is currently under observation at ILS Hospital, where he was admitted due to oral irritation and swelling on his lips.
