Mumbai || Legendary West Indian cricketer Brian Lara has been admitted to a Mumbai hospital after he complained of breathlessness and chest pain. He was rushed to the Global Hospital in Parel. Lara is in India as part of a commentators team of the ongoing World Cup 2019.
Lara had taken time out from his hectic schedule to indulge in a game of gully cricket on the streets of Mumbai along with former Australia pacer Brett Lee during the IPL 2019.
“He had an angioplasty (a procedure to open narrowed or blocked blood vessels that supply blood to the heart) done two years back and today was a regular check-up as there is always a fear of heart pain. He is fine now and will be discharged soon,” the media reported a source as saying.
The West Indies cricket board took to Twitter to wish Lara a ‘speedy recovery.’
