Cricket Legend Brian Lara Has Been Rushed To Hospital

West Indies cricket legend Brian Lara has been rushed to hospital after complaining of chest pain, according to The Sun.

The 50-year-old was taken to the Global Hospital in Parel, India, where he is currently commentating on the ICC World Cup for Star Sports following his work covering the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Sources told The Hindu that he was at an event in a nearby hotel when he complained of discomfort.

The former international cricketer has been acknowledged as one of the greatest batsmen of all time.

He holds several cricketing records which include the highest individual score in first-class cricket, with 501 not out for Warwickshire against Durham at Edgbaston back in 1994.

Lara also holds the record for the highest individual score in a Test innings after reaching 400 not out against England at Antigua 15 years ago.

He also shares the test record of scoring the highest number of runs in a single over during a Test match, after he scored 28 runs off an over in South Africa back in 2003. This was matched a decade later in 2013 by Australia's George Bailey.
