Former Pakistan skipper Inzamam undergoes angioplasty after suffering heart attack

Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has underwent a successful angioplasty after suffering a heart attack in Lahore.

According to reports, Inzamam, 51, had been in a state of discomfort for the past three days as he complained about chest pain following which doctors initially cleared him after preliminary tests but upon further inspection, it was revealed that he had suffered a heart attack.

Inzamam, who also served as the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) chief selector, was immediately rushed to hospital for surgery. Later, his manager informed the media on Monday evening that the former cricketer’s condition was now stable but will have to be under observation for few more time.

Inzamam amassed 8830 runs in 120 Tests, averaging 49.33, which also included 25 hundreds, two double tons and 46 half centuries.

In One Day Internationals (ODIs), he scored 11739 runs in 378 runs with an average of 39.53. His ODI career also included 10 hundreds and 83 half-centuries.

After retiring from cricket, he served as batting consultant and chief selector of Pakistan beside also working as head coach of Afghanistan.

Inzamam had stepped down as Pakistan’s chief selector in July 2019 and had announced that he would not seek an extension or renewal of his contract.

Inzamam, who bid farewell to international cricket in 2007, is considered as one of Pakistan’s most successful captains.
