The health of Pakistan batting great Zaheer Abbas is improving but remains in a hospital in London, his wife said on Wednesday.
“Zaheer’s condition by the grace of Allah is improving but he is still in the hospital,” Zaheer’s wife told media.
To a question, Zaheer’s wife said the Pakistan Cricket Board was in contact with her, adding PCB chairman Ramiz Raja had talked to her to inquire about Zaheer’s health.
Known as Asian Bradman for his superb batting display, 74-year-old Zaheer was hospitalised due to deteriorating health in London last month.
The 78-Test veteran, who suffered from Covid-19 in 2021, again faced the same situation while travelling from Dubai to London in mid-June. After reaching London, he was taken to hospital in a critical condition and remained in the ICU for several days.
The Sialkot-born Zaheer, who played for Pakistan from 1969 to 1985 and acted as president of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2015-16, suffered from back pain when he was in Karachi before leaving on June 1 for the UAE where he stayed for two weeks before leaving for London.
