Former Pakistan batting great and ex-chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq was rushed to a hospital in Lahore after suffering a heart attack on Monday morning.
The former captain underwent angioplasty and his condition was believed to be stable.
A stent has been successfully placed in Inzamam’s heart, his manager told media.
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.
Inzamam-ul-Haq is also considered among Pakistan’s most successful captains. He bid farewell to international cricket in 2007 and started serving cricket in different positions.
