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. 

One of these positions included a stint with the national squad as its batting consultant and then another as the national squad’s chief selector from 2016 to 2019.

He was also appointed as the Afghanistan cricket team’s head coach a couple of years ago.
