Ricky Ponting, a legendary Australian batter and former Skipper of the Australian team was on commentary duty with seven networks. Ricky Ponting has been taken to hospital in Perth as a precaution after feeling unwell on Day 3 of the ongoing test between Australia and West Indies during the lunch break.
It’s been reported Ponting suffered a heart scare, but no confirmed details have been made public about his condition.
The 47-year-old walked out of Seven’s commentary box on the stroke of lunch, having been on the broadcast for the previous 40 minutes, and did not need any assistance. He was accompanied by close friend and former Australia coach Justin Langer to a car and sent to the hospital as a precaution. He did not return for the rest of the day, but it’s understood he told colleagues he was feeling okay at the hospital.
