Graham Thorpe, the former England batter, is “seriously ill” in hospital, according to the Professional Cricketers’ Association.

Thorpe, 52, played 100 Tests for England between 1993 and 2005, scoring 16 centuries at an average of 44.66.

He was recently announced as Afghanistan’s new head coach after a decade of involvement in England’s coaching set-up, which ended this winter’s 4-0 Ashes defeat in Australia.

Heart Attack:

Thorpe, 52, had accepted the job of Afghanistan head coach following his departure from the England set-up after a 4-0 defeat in the Ashes, which took place in Australia in December and January.

The PCA released a statement at the request of Thorpe’s family, which read: “Graham Thorpe has recently fallen seriously ill and is currently in hospital receiving treatment.

“His prognosis is unclear at this stage and we ask for privacy for him and his family at this time. Our thoughts are with Graham and his family.”
