Javed Miandad, a famous cricket player, was “admitted to hospital.”

After his health got worse, cricket legend Javed Miandad was taken to a hospital in the city of Karachi.

The legend, who is known for hitting a six with the last ball against India in the final of the Austral-Asia Cup in 1986, was taken to the hospital after he “suddenly collapsed,” Geo News said.

As news spread that Miandad had been taken to the hospital, he sent a video message to his fans telling them that his illness was “not serious.”

Miandad said, “I heard that people were worried about my health, but I’d like to make it clear that I only went to the hospital for a checkup because I had a mild headache.”

“Don’t worry about anything, and I’ll be back home soon,” he said.

Over the course of his long and successful career, the 65-year-old played in 124 Tests and 233 ODIs. He was also on Pakistan’s team that won the World Cup in 1992.

The man from Karachi played his first ODI in 1975, but it took him another year to play his first Test.

He stopped playing for his country in 1996, after saying that his skills weren’t used well enough at the World Cup that year.
