Former England batsman Rob Key recovering after experiencing mini stroke

Former England and Kent batsman, Rob Key, is recovering after experiencing a mini stroke.

Key, in his Instagram post, revealed that he had to undergo treatment at the hospital when the stroke occurred at the weekend.

The 41-year-old, in his post, wrote: "Long weekend. Turns out I've had a mini stroke.

"Thanks to everyone at the Kent and Canterbury hospital especially Charlie And dr baht. Now got to eat food with no flavour and take pills #triffic."

Key has represented England in 15 Test matches, five ODIs and a lone T20I.

His top moment for England came back against the West Indies in 2004, when he scored 221 at the historic Lord’s stadium.

Key has scored almost 20,000 first-class runs for Kent, having made his debut in 1998. He hung up his boots from an illustrious FC career in 2015 before taking up the commentary role for Sky Sports Cricket.
