Lahore [Pakistan], September 28 (ANI): Former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq has been discharged from hospital after undergoing angioplasty, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja confirmed on Tuesday.

"Inzi wishing you well and so good that you are now back at home. Rest and recoup my friend," tweeted Raja.

Inzamam-ul-Haq who suffered a heart attack underwent successful angioplasty on Monday evening and was kept under observation.

Inzamam was complaining about chest pain over the last three days and the initial testing had cleared him but tests on Monday revealed he had suffered a heart attack, reported ESPNcricinfo. He was then rushed for surgery.

The 51-year-old Inzamam is Pakistan's highest run-getter in ODIs with 11701 runs in 375 matches, and the country's third-highest in Tests with 8829 runs in 119 matches. He was also among the country's most successful captains.

Inzamam had retired from the international game in 2007 and has since held several positions in Pakistan, as a batting consultant and then the chief selector from 2016 to 2019.

He has also worked as head coach of Afghanistan. (ANI)
