Mumbai, Oct 2(ANI): Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, who returned to Mumbai on Friday after India's elimination from Champions Trophy, revealed much more than a minor health scare that was reported in South Africa on the eve of their must win game against West Indies.
Tendulkar had been ruled out of India's match against West Indies on Wednesday after coming down with a bout of food poisoning, but when he came back to Mumbai a cut near his nose and another one below his left eye gave a different story altogether.
According to reports, on the night before the much important game, Tendulkar went to an Indian restaurant in Johannesburg along with his captain MS Dhoni, Ashish Nehra and Harbhajan Singh, and after returning to his hotel room, he felt dizzy and lost consciousness.
He subsequently fell flat on his face, which left him with the cut marks and a black spot on his nose.
Tendulkar returned home along with all-rounders Yusuf Pathan and Abhishek Nayar, team manager Anurag Thakur, physio Nitin Patel and masseur Ramesh Mane. (ANI)
