Legendary West Indies batsman Brian Lara was on Tuesday admitted to a Mumbai hospital after he complained of chest pain.

Lara was admitted to the Global Hospital in Parel at around 12:30 p.m., which was confirmed by the West Indies Cricket Board later in the afternoon.

However, despite repeated attempts, the hospital declined to divulge details on the former cricketer's medical condition, as speculation was rife over his health status.

"We understand media's interest, but we do not reveal our patients' clinical and health condition without their explicit consent. We respect our patients' right to privacy at all times," an official spokesperson for Global Hospital said.

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.
