West Indies legend Brian Lara was discharged from Global Hospital around 12.15 pm on Wednesday. An Angiography was performed and nothing was revealed in Angiography so no Angioplasty was required to be performed. He is doing fine now.

Lara was rushed to Global Hospital in Parel on Tuesday. As per sources, he was admitted after he complained of chest pain. He was brought into the hospital at around 12:30 pm and the medical investigations followed immediately. Lara was attending an event in the vicinity when he felt uneasy and complained of discomfort.

However, in an official audio message tweeted by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), Lara, who is in Mumbai currently working with official broadcasters of ICC World Cup, Star Sports, said that he exerted himself too much at the gym in the morning and because he felt chest pains, and  thought that it was best to consult a doctor. 

"The pain continued, so obviously a lot of tests have been done. I am just chilling in my hospital bed watching England vs Australia. Hopefully, Australia can restrict England and beat them, not a big fan of England. I am just letting everyone know that I am fine, recovering and I'll be back in my hotel room tomorrow. A couple of tests came back already, the doctors are happy.", he can be heard saying in the audio message. 


Nicknamed as 'The Prince of Trinidad', Lara represented West Indies for 17 years.  He became the youngest captain for the team of Trinidad and Tobago at just the age of 20. He made his Test debut for the West Indies side the same year against Pakistan in Lahore, where he registered scores of 44 and 6. Right after the Test, he had to return to the domestic circuit and only became a regular once Richards retired. 

In his three captaincy stints, the team didn't really shine, but the greatest feat for him as a captain was when he led his side to win the ICC Champions Trophy in 2004. He hung his gloriously-worn boots after the '07 World Cup. Lara's score of 400 against England in 2004 remains the highest individual Test score till date.
