Karachi [Pakistan], December 22 (ANI): Pakistan batter Abid Ali on Wednesday underwent an angioplasty a day after he complained of chest pain while playing during the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match.
On Tuesday, the batter was hospitalized and he will now undergo another angioplasty on Thursday before being discharged, reported ESPNcricinfo.
After the batter was hospitalized, Pakistan Cricket Board had released a statement, saying: "He is under the care of Consultant Cardiologist who is liaising with PCB medical team regarding further treatment. He is currently stable."
