Abid told the media earlier this week at the National High-Performance Centre Lahore that he hoped to play in Pakistan’s next series. Last December, the opener was hospitalised after experiencing chest pains during the final round of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match between Central Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. He also underwent heart surgery.
“My life changed in an instant,” he said of the incident. Then there was a time when I wondered if my career was over, but I didn’t dwell on it too much and stayed focused on recovery.”
Abid Ali has played 16 Tests for Pakistan, scoring 1,180 runs at an average of 49.16, and 6 One-Day Internationals, scoring 234 runs at an average of 39.00.
