“I’m going to be on medication for a while because of the stents implanted, but overall physically I feel fine. I dive, I run, I jog, I beat and it’s really great to be normal again.” again with heart disease but I didn’t give up hope… It was tough but the recovery was great with all the extensive rehab.”
Abid played 16 test matches and six one-day internationals for Pakistan. “I don’t know what the status of my national team is at the moment, but I’m ready for my return,” he added.
