"Pataudi is better now. He is improving," a doctor was quoted as saying by PTI on Saturday. Pataudi's son Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan rushed to Delhi from Mumbai to attend to his father on Friday. He along with his mother Sharmila Tagore are currently in Delhi to be with the former cricket star.

Pataudi, regarded as one of the finest Indian captains, played 46 Tests for the country, scoring 2793 runs for an average of 34.91 with an unbeaten 203 being his highest score. He smashed six centuries and 16 fifties in his career.
