Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting was reportedly rushed to a hospital due to a health scare midway on day 3 of the Australia-West Indies Test match being played at Perth.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that Ponting complained of feeling unwell while on a commentating assignment for Channel 7.

“Ricky Ponting is unwell and will not be providing commentary for the remainder of today’s coverage,” a Seven spokesperson said, according to the SMH report.

Further, the SMH reported the industry sources saying that Ponting was feeling “fine” after a hospital check-up. However, he did not return to the commentary box before stumps on Day 3.

It has been a difficult couple of years for Australian cricket as far as heart health is concerned. This year, the game lost two of the biggest legends to wear Australian colours, Rod Marsh and Shane Warne in March.

Dean Jones, another Australian batter also suddenly passed away due to a heart attack in September 2020. Also, former Western Australia wicketkeeper and more recently Netherlands coach, Ryan Campbell also experienced a cardiac episode in April this year, due to which he almost died.

Ponting has represented Aussies in 168 Tests, having scored 13.378 runs at an average of 51.85, with 41 tons and 62 fifties.

In 375 ODIs, he scored 13,704 runs at an average of 42.03, with 30 centuries and 82 fifties. In 17 T20Is, he made 401 runs at an average of 28.64 and scored two fifties.

He was a part of Australian team that won three straight 50-over World Cups in 1999, 2003, and 2007, leading the side to triumphs in later two tournaments as skipper.
