‘I’m Fine & Recovering’: Hospitalised Brian Lara in Audio Message

Legendary West Indies batsman Brian Lara, who was admitted to a Mumbai hospital on on Tuesday, 25 June after complaining of chest pain, has said that he is “fine and recovering”.

Lara’s voice message was shared by the West Indies Cricket Board, after the 50-year-old was admitted to the Global Hospital in Parel at around 12:30 p.m. He said:”Hi everyone. I know everyone is very concerned about what’s happening. I think I just maybe extended myself a bit too much in the gym this morning, and was feeling a bit of pain in my chest so I just felt it was best to see a doctor. I was taken to a hospital. Pain continued so obviously a lot of tests have been done and I’m just chilling in my hospital bed and watching England vs Australia.”

“Hopefully Australia can restrict England and beat them. Not a big fan of England,” he added.

Lara further said that he would be returning to his hotel room on Wednesday.

“I’m going to be alright. Just ease off the messages, my phone’s going non-stop. I’m going to switch it off even though I wouldn’t like to because I’d like to speak to my family. Just letting everyone know I’m fine, recovering and will be back in my hotel room tomorrow. Couple of the test results came back already and the doctors were quite happy that there’s nothing major. Thanks again for your concern. Speak to you soon. Also, I’m accustomed to breach of privacy but that’s how my life is. Speak to everyone soon. I’ll be back in Trinidad and I’ll be back in full health very soon. Bye.”

Lara is currently in India working as a cricket expert for Star Sports, the official broadcaster of the ongoing ICC ODI World Cup.

The former Caribbean batsman played 131 Tests for the West Indies and amassed 11,953 runs, while he scored 10,405 runs at 40.17 in 299 ODIs.
