Kolkata, April 15 (IANS) Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir on Wednesday said he would not be travelling with the team to Pune as he is suffering from a stomach bug and fever.
“Not travelling to Pune with @KKRiders today. Cramps, weakness and fever…bad timing. Living on khichdee and curd-rice…,” Gambhir tweeted.
Confirming the news to IANS, Gambhir’s manager Dinesh Chopra said: “He is not travelling with the team, he is down with a stomach bug and fever.”
