Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting made his way to the commentary box for the Perth Test between Australia and West Indies 24 hours after suffering a sharp chest pain, which forced him to leave the venue midway for a checkup.

The legendary player spoke about the incident, thanking his friend and former teammate Justin Langer for taking care of him.

“Lot of people got scared yesterday, and it was a scary moment for me as well,” Ponting told Channel Seven. I was in the box when I had those short and sharp pains in my chest. I tried a couple of things to get rid of it as I don’t want to make an issue when I was on the air,” he added.

“I told Justin Langer, who was there with me in the box, about the pains in my chest. Chris Jones heard me and got me out of there. 10 or 15 minutes later, I got the best treatment in the hospital.

“I am feeling good this morning, and thanks to JL for looking after me. People of our age don’t want to talk about health, and this was a good learning curve for me yesterday, especially with what has happened to some of my teammates and other players in the last 12-18 months.”
