Pakistan cricket legend Inzamam-ul-Haq suffers heart attack, undergoes emergency angioplasty
'Inzamam is now doing much better and will be released soon from the hospital,' a family member said.
Former Pakistan captain and most capped cricket player Inzamam-ul-Haq had to undergo an emergency angioplasty at a private hospital in Lahore after complaining of heart-related issues and breathing difficulty.
A family member said that Inzamam felt uneasy and complained of having difficulty in breathing on Monday.
He was taken to a private hospital where, after several tests, it was revealed that he might have had a minor attack. Doctors advised him to undergo an emergency angioplasty and a well-known heart surgeon, Professor Abbas Kazim, performed the procedure.
“Inzamam is now doing much better and will be released soon from the hospital. He is okay now," one family member said.
The 51-year old, who played 120 Tests and 378 ODIs during an illustrious career, also served as a chief selector between 2016 and 2019 and it was in his tenure that Pakistan won the ICC Champions Trophy final against India in 2017.
He was, however, told to step down in late 2019 after the World Cup by a new Pakistan Cricket Board management. The former top batsman also coached the Afghanistan team in the 2016 T20 World Cup.
