West Indies legend Brian Lara has been admitted to hospital in Mumbai after suffering from chest pain.
The 50-year-old former captain was taken to the Global Hospital in Parel, Mumbai, after complaining of pain in his chest.
Lara is in India working for broadcaster Star Sports during the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.
He made 131 Test appearances for the Windies, scoring almost 12,000 runs at an average of 52.89.
Trinidadian Lara made his international debut in 1990 and would be the star player in the West Indies’ team for the next 17 years.
He amassed 53 centuries for Windies and remains the only player to score 400 in a single Test innings, achieving the feat against England in 2004.
Lara also owns the record for the highest-ever first-class score, having made an astonishing 501* for Warwickshire in 1994.
The former West Indies captain is one of Star Sports’ experts for the World Cup. Windies are on the verge of being knocked out of the tournament after winning just one of their first six matches.
