Former Australia Test captain Ricky Ponting reportedly suffered heart complications after which he was taken to the hospital.
The cricket coach, commentator and former cricketer, under whose leadership Australia won three World Cup trophies, experienced the scare during commentary on day 3 of the first Test between Australia and West Indies.
According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, Ponting is now in stable condition.
The 47-year-old went for checks after feeling unwell around lunchtime, with The Australian newspaper saying it was a heart issue but not serious.
"I only heard it a minute ago," Australian skipper Pat Cummins said in a press conference after the third day´s play.
"Obviously wish Ricky the best, was just chatting to him this morning out in the field. By all reports, it sounds like he's going okay.
"But anything like that is super scary so wish him all the best."
Ponting, who played 168 Tests and 375 ODIs during a glittering career, commentated in the morning session but missed the remainder of play.
