Pakistan batter to have another procedure before being discharged
The 34-year-old will undergo another angioplasty tomorrow, before being discharged. In a message from his hospital bed this morning, Abid said he was doing well and asked his fans to pray for his recovery.
On Tuesday evening, a PCB statement had said that Abid had been diagnosed with Acute Coronary Syndrome or ACS. “He is under the care of Consultant Cardiologist who is liaising with PCB medical team regarding further treatment. He is currently stable,” the statement read. ACS is often used to describe a range of conditions resulting from a sudden, reduced blood flow to the heart.
Abid returned to his domestic side, Central Punjab, following the recent Bangladesh tour, where he was Player of the Series for the Tests after scoring 263 runs at 87.66. He was playing his sixth first-class game this season and had scored 766 runs at an average of 51.89 with three hundreds. On the last day of the ongoing game at UBL Complex in Karachi, he had crossed a half-century when he complained of discomfort around his shoulder and chest area before he was rushed to the hospital.
