Legendary batsman Zaheer Abbas is recovering but still in ICU: Wife

The wife of legendary cricketer Zaheer Abbas — who admitted to a hospital in London earlier this month — said on Wednesday that while his health was improving, he still treated at the intensive care unit (ICU).

“Thank you for your prayers and wishes, Zaheer is improving. Still in the ICU though,” Sameena Abbas told private news channel.

According to ESPNcricinfo, Zaheer is under treatment at a private hospital in London. “It is understood that the 74-year-old is on dialysis after being diagnosed with pneumonia following his arrival in London from Dubai,” the report said.

It went on to say that Zaheer had been in London since June 16 and taken to the hospital after feeling unwell a day later. The report also said that Zaheer had tested positive for Covid-19 in Dubai which had delayed his scheduled departure to London.

“While his condition improved and he boarded his flight to London, his health took a turn for the worse. He was admitted to the ICU soon after, and ESPNcricinfo understands he was placed on dialysis,” the report said.

Former captain and coach Waqar Younis and all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez wished the former batsman a speedy recovery.
