Inzamam-ul-Haq, the former Pakistan captain and one of their all-time batting greats, has been discharged from the hospital after suffering a heart attack in Lahore. Inzamam underwent a successful angioplasty on Monday evening, reports Cricinfo. Inzamam, who shot to global prominence during Pakistan’s World Cup winning 1992 campaign, had been complaining about chest pain over the last three days.
