Inzamam 'stable' after suffering heart attack

The 51-year-old underwent a successful angioplasty on Monday evening in Lahore

Former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq suffered a heart attack and is currently in hospital in Lahore. The 51-year-old underwent a successful angioplasty on Monday (September 27) evening and is now 'stable' but is still under observation.

Inzamam had some chest pain for the last three days and after some tests on Monday it was revealed that he had suffered a heart attack. Inzamam was rushed for surgery but is stable now.

The former right-handed batter is Pakistan’s highest and third-highest run-getter in ODIs and Tests respectively. Inzamam amassed 11739 runs in 378 ODIs at an average of 39.52. 

In Tests, he scored 8830 runs in 120 games at a stunning average of 49.60. Overall, Inzamam slammed 35 centuries and 129 fifties in his international career.

Having retired from the game in 2007, Inzamam has worked as a batting consultant for Pakistan and was also their chief selector from 2016 to 2019. He was also the head coach of Afghanistan.
