Ricky Ponting returns to commentary
Ricky Ponting is back at work after 24 hours but he has told that this severe chest pain was a very scary experience for him. Ponting is also a two-time world champion and one of the best batsmen for the Kangaroos. During this he thanked his old partner and friend Justin Langer who took care of him. Speaking to Channel 7, Ponting said, “I probably scared a lot of people yesterday and it was a scary experience for me too.” I was sitting in the comment box and I got a couple of short but very sharp pains in my chest. I started stretching to get rid of it and I was on air so didn’t want to pay too much attention to it.
shared my experience
Ponting said that this happened to him a couple of times and then he spoke to Justin Langer who was commentating with him. Then the rest of the officials also came to know about his problem and immediately after that Ponting was taken to the hospital. Punter says that after 10 to 15 minutes I was in the hospital and I was getting the best treatment possible at that time. I am feeling good this morning.
Ponting said that I would like to tell that Justin Langer has taken a lot of care of me. People of our age hesitate a bit while talking about their health but what happened yesterday is a lesson for us. Especially when we have seen what has happened to those close to us in the last 12 to 18 months. My friend took care of me and brought me back here and I am feeling absolutely fine this morning.
