Legendary batsman and former Pakistan skipper has been hospitalised after suffering a heart attack on Monday (September 27). The 51-year-old Inzamam underwent angioplasty at a hospital in Lahore.
According to a Cricket Pakistan report, Inzamam had been facing pain in his chest for the last three days but his initial tests did not reveal anything. But on Monday some more tests were done after which it was revealed that the former Pakistan had suffered a minor heart attack after which Inzamam was admitted to hospital for surgery.
Sources said that Inzamam’s condition is now stable but he is still under observation.
Indian commentator Harsha Bhogle took to Twitter to wish Inzamam speedy recovery. “Wishing Inzamam-ul-Haq all the very best, that he recovers completely and remains part of our game for many many years,” he tweeted.
