Former Australia Test captain Ricky Ponting has been reportedly rushed to a Perth hospital during the first Test between Australia and West Indies.

“Ricky Ponting is unwell and will not be providing commentary for the remainder of today’s coverage,” a Channel 7 spokesperson was quoted as saying by The Daily Telegraph.

Ponting was rushed to a Perth hospital around lunch on day three of the first Test and thereby could not commentate in the next session.

According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, Ponting’s colleagues have stated that he is stable but went to the hospital for precautionary checks since he was feeling unwell.
