The 41-year-old cricketer was on November 29 Kambli was taken ill while he was driving from Chembur to Bandra and suddenly stopped the vehicle.

He was rushed to the suburban hospital accompanied by police personnel after he complained of chest pain while driving his car and had sought help.

"Thank you for your good wishes and prayers. My health is a lot better now. I am back home," Kambli said after being discharged from the hospital.

Kambli had undergone angioplasty on two of his blocked arteries in July 2012.

The former middle-order batsman shares an unbroken partnership of 664 runs with childhood friend and cricketing great Sachin Tendulkar in a school match. 

While Tendulkar retired earlier this month as the world's leading run-maker in both Test and one-day cricket and an unprecedented 100 international centuries against his name, Kambli faded after a bright start.

The flamboyant left-hander hit two double-centuries and two hundreds in his first eight Test innings after earning a debut in 1993, but another three-figure knock in Tests eluded him.

Kambli played the last of his 17 Tests in 1995 before he had turned 24, finishing with 1,084 runs at an average of 54.20.

He also scored 2,477 runs in 104 one-day internationals with two centuries.
