Former cricketer Tauseef Ahmed suffers cardiac arrest

Pakistan’s former spinner Tauseef Ahmed has been shifted to a Lahore hospital after suffering a cardiac arrest Saturday.

The cricketer was attending a wedding ceremony where he suffered a heart attack and was hurried to the hospital shortly.

He was rushed to a local hospital by ambulance for urgent medical aid. His condition has been stated to be out of danger.

Tauseef Ahmed is 62 years old and had played 34 Test matches and 70 One Day Internationals (ODIs) between 1980 and 1993 for Pakistan. He is equally famous for his part in the historic Australasia Sharjah Cup final where Javed Minada only hit the winning six on the last ball of the match against India after Tauseef, who came as the last man, managed to take a single on the penultimate ball.

As an off-break bowler, he took 93 Test wickets and 55 ODI wickets.
