West Indies batting legend Brian Lara has been discharged from a Mumbai hospital today, a day after he was admitted due to chest pains. Lara was rushed to hospital yesterday in India, where he is currently working for Star Sports, the official broadcasters of the ongoing Cricket World Cup. The 50-year-old Trinidadian underwent an angiography as a precaution. Lara released an audio recording last night in which he said he was fine.
One of the best batsmen of all time, Lara holds two world records – the highest Test score of 400 not out, and the highest first class knock of 501 that he scored in the English county championship in 1994. The former skipper retired in 2007 after a dismal West Indies campaign in the World Cup.
