Pakistan’s former legendary fast-bowler Sarfaraz Nawaz has been admitted to a hospital in London due to a heart problem.
Nawaz was among the finest cricketers to have represented Pakistan and the inventor of reverse swing which left many batsmen baffled. His international career spanned over 15 years from March 1969 to November 1984.
He played 55 Tests for Pakistan and took 177 wickets. He also played 45 ODIs and picked 63 wickets besides taking 1,005 first-class wickets.
The 70-year-old is most famously known for his match-winning performance against Australia at Melbourne in 1997 where he picked nine wickets for 86 runs that included a spell of seven wickets for just one run off 33 balls.
