Lahore, Sep 28 : Cricketers are pouring in tweets wishing for former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haqs recovery after he suffered a heart attack. Inzamam had suffered a heart attack late on Monday and was rushed to the hospital, where he underwent angioplasty and was discharged later.

Inzamam shot into prominence during Pakistan's 1992 World Cup winning campaign. He is the highest run-scorer from his country in ODIs, scoring 11,701 runs in 375 matches. He is also the third-highest run-getter in Test cricket for Pakistan with 8829 runs in 119 matches.

After retiring from international cricket in 2007, Inzamam has dabbled in as a batting coach apart from being head coach of Afghanistan. He also served as the chief selector of Pakistan from 2016 to 2019.

Several former and current cricketers rushed to Twitter to wish 51-year-old Inzamam speedy 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 former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.

"My heart goes out to Inzy Bhai who has undergone an angioplasty. By the grace of almighty Allah, I pray that he recovers soon. @Inzamam08," commented former India captain Mohammed Azharuddin.

"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," wrote former Pakistan cricketer Wasim Akram.

"Man with the Lion Heart. These small Heart attacks ain't gonna harm my old buddy. Get well soon big boy. @Inzamam08 We all praying for your speedy recovery," wrote former Pakistan cricketer Waqar Younis.
