According to reports in the Australian media, Australian great Ricky Ponting had a health scare while commentating on the first Test match between Australia and the West Indies and was taken to a nearby hospital in Perth. Ponting, who serves on the Channel 7 experts panel and works for SKY, left the commentary booth during a live broadcast because he felt uneasy. He did not come back.

Regarding Ponting’s health, no verified information has surfaced or been made available to the public. Ponting, 47, had been making observations for almost 40 minutes on Day 3 when the incident happened at the start of lunch. His former Australia teammate and coach Justin Langer drove him to the hospital in a vehicle.

Ricky Ponting is ill and won’t be providing commentary for the remaining portions of today’s coverage, a Channel 7 spokesperson told Australian media. Later, according to a report in The Telegraph, Ponting’s coworkers said he is “doing ok.”

Ponting, one of the all-time great captains, led Australia during its heyday of supremacy. Along with the Champions Trophy in 2006, Australia won back-to-back World Cups under his leadership in 2003 and 2007. Ponting is also the second-most successful Test captain of all time, having led the team to 48 victories and 16 straight victories, which matched the record set by his predecessor Steve Waugh.

With 13,378 runs at an average of 51.85 and 41 centuries, Ponting, an Australia veteran of 168 Tests and 375 ODIs, is the nation’s top Test run-scorer. With 13,589 runs, including 29 hundred and 82 half-centuries, he also tops the list in ODIs. He participated in Australia’s 1999 World Cup-winning campaign as well.

Ponting made his retirement announcement in 2012 and is currently a part of the Delhi Capitals’ coaching staff in the IPL. Less than a year has passed since Ponting’s former Australia teammate Shane Warne passed away from a cardiac arrest.
