Former Pakistan captain and an all-time great batsman, Inzamamul Haq, suffered a heart attack and successfully underwent angioplasty on Monday evening.

It is reported that Inzamam had been in a state of discomfort for the past three days, where the right-hand batter complained about chest pain. The initial test reports cleared him but upon further inspection, it was revealed that the 51-year-old had suffered a heart attack. Following this, he was rushed to the hospital for surgery.

Previously, his agent confirmed that Inzamam is doing better. The latest update confirms that Inzamam has now been released from the hospital.

Inzamam remains one of the most successful captains in Pakistan cricket history alongside being one of the most decorated batsman the country has ever produced. He shot to global prominence in the 1992 World Cup and is also Pakistan's leading run-scorer in the ODIs with 11,701 runs in 375 matches. He is also the third highest run-getter in the longest format of the game for the Men in Green.

After retiring, Inzamam remained connected to Pakistan cricket in different capacity; he has served as a batting consultant and chief selector. In addition to that, Inzamam has also worked as head coach of Afghanistan national team.
