MUMBAI (PTI) - Former India skipper Nari Contractor was hospitalised after he fell while taking a morning walk near his South Mumbai house. "He was taking his morning walk in his colony Rustom Baug and had a fall. He was admitted to the hospital and is much better now," his one-time team-mate Bapu Nadkarni said. He hurt his head in the fall. The 77-year-old Gujarat-born cricketer, a left-handed opener in his playing days, has been admitted to the Parsee General Hospital. Contractor's blossoming international career was cut short due to a serious skull injury sustained against the West Indies on India's second tour of the Caribbean in 1962. Contractor - who became India's youngest captain aged 26 when he was appointed in 1960-61 - played in 31 Tests, scoring 1,611 runs with one hundred and averaged just over 31 per innings.
