Cricket fraternity wished former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq a speedy recovery after the latter suffered a heart attack.
The 51-year-old Inzamam had been complaining about chest pain for the past few days, but the situation got worse on Monday evening. He was soon rushed to the nearby hospital in Lahore, where he underwent angioplasty. As per the latest reports, he has returned home following successful surgery.
Taking to his Twitter handle, batting legend Sachin Tendulkar lauded Inzamam and prayed for his quick recovery.
“Wishing you a speedy recovery @Inzamam08. You’ve always been calm yet competitive, and a fighter on the field. I hope and pray that you’ll come out stronger from this situation as well. Get well soon,” wrote Tendulkar.

Inzamam made his international debut in November 1991 and was a part of Pakistan’s successful 1992 World Cup campaign. He went on to lead his national team and eventually finished as their most prolific batsman with over 20,000 runs by the time he retired in 2007. In the second innings, he worked with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as the chief selector from April 2016 to July 2019.
Here is how other cricketers sent good wishes to Inzamam:

Dear Inzi, you have a beautiful heart. Seems like it's caught the evil eye. I was worried that someone with such a big heart was in such pain. Praying that you get better quickly so that your sweet heart can make everyone happy. My dearest friend, take good care. Let's meet soon.
