Indian cricketing legend Kapil Dev is recovering in a hospital intensive care unit (ICU) after suffering a heart attack, a spokesperson for the New Delhi hospital treating him said Friday.

The 62-year-old former Indian captain underwent emergency coronary angioplasty operation after he was admitted to Fortis Escorts Heart Institute, New Delhi, at the early hours of Friday morning complaining of chest pain.

Dev is stable and under supervision in the ICU, Fortis Escorts Heart Institute said in a statement, adding that he’s expected to be discharged within a”few days.” Dev, who captained India to a historic World Cup victory on the West Indies in 1983, is the only player in history to have both taken more than 400 wickets and scored over 5,000 test runs. He’s coached the Indian cricket team, worked as a commentator and more recently has forayed to golf, representing India at a set of amateur leagues.
