London: Former test cricketer Sarfraz Nawaz has been admitted into a hospital in London due to a heart ailment.
The 70 year old former fast bowler was photographed by sports writer Mirza Iqbal Baig.
 
 
Nawaz is known as the inventor of the reverse swing. He played 55 tests and claimed 177 wickets for his team. He also played 45 one-day internationals for Pakistan, while taking 63 wickets.
 
However, Nawaz’s best moments on field came about in 1979 in Melbourne when he took nine wickets for 86 against Australia. That performance included a tally of seven wickets for just one run off 33 balls.
 
He also gained more fame when he married Lollywood superstar Rani.
 

Since retiring, Nawaz dabbled in commentary and politics.
