BRIDGETOWN – Iconic former West Indies batsman Brian Lara has reassured fans he is “fine and recovering” after being admitted to a hospital in Mumbai with chest pains on Tuesday.

The 50-year-old Lara, who is in India performing duties as a media analyst for the ongoing World Cup in England, said several of the tests completed by doctors so far had revealed “nothing major” and anticipated leaving hospital by Wednesday.

He complained of chest pains and was rushed to Mumbai’s General Hospital in Parel.

Lara, a former captain, holds the record for the most runs by a West Indies batsman in Tests with 11 953 runs in from 131 matches.

He quit international cricket in 2007 following the historic Cricket World Cup in the Caribbean. (CMC)
