Former West Indies batting great Brian Lara was on Tuesday admitted to a hospital in Mumbai. This, after he complained of chest pain.
50-year-old Lara is at present in India as an expert for a sports network for the ongoing Cricket World Cup in England.
ANI reported that Lara has been admitted to Global Hospital in Parel. The hospital would soon release a statement on his health status.
Lara is regarded by many as one of the many great batsmen in history. He still holds the record for the highest individual score, an unbeaten 501. Lara is the only man to score 400 in a Test match.
Lara represented West Indies in 131 Tests and 299 ODIs from 1990 to 2007. In 131 Tests, Lara scored 11,953 runs with 34 centuries and 48 fifties. In 299 ODIs, the southpaw scored more than 10,400 runs including 19 centuries and 63 fifties.
Lara had quit all forms of international cricket in 2007. He last represented West Indies against England on April 21, 2007. The Trinidadian was the highest run scorer in Test cricket before Sachin Tendulkar went past him.
