Pakistan batting great Inzamam-ul-Haq suffers heart attack


Former Pakistan batting great and ex-chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq underwent an angioplasty surgery Monday evening after he suffered a heart attack in Lahore, his manager revealed.

Inzamam’s manager revealed a successful angioplasty had been carried out at a private hospital, adding that his condition was stable but doctors had kept him in observation.

The manager said a stent has been successfully placed in Inzamam’s heart.

Inzamam-ul-Haq had been complaining about chest pain over the last three days, a cricket-based website reported. After tests, it was revealed he had suffered a heart attack and needed immediate surgery.

Inzamam-ul-Haq was first noticed at the global level during Pakistan’s World Cup-winning 1992 run. He later became Pakistan’s highest run-getter in ODIs with 11,701 runs in 375 matches, and the country’s third-highest run-scorer in Tests with 8,829 runs from 119 matches under his belt.
