Sydney: Richie Benaud, the former Australia test captain who has become the doyen of TV cricket commentators around the world, is in a stable condition in hospital after an auto accident.

   






The Nine Network on Thursday said the 83-year-old Benaud was driving alone near his home in Sydney's southeastern beach suburbs on Wednesday when his car hit a small brick wall.
   
Benaud sustained chest and shoulder injuries and was expected to remain in hospital for a few days.
   
In a statement, Benaud says "No one else was injured, and I was more worried about the car than myself."
   
Daphne Benaud said her husband on Thursday was "looking unbelievably well."
   
Benaud had been scheduled to join the commentary panel during the Ashes series between Australia against England starting next month in Brisbane.
