Hanif Muhammad

Pakistani cricket legend, Hanif Muhammad has been recently diagnosed of respiratory complications due to lung cancer. He was facing respiratory complications since three consecutive years. According to the recent news updates, Prime Minister has ordered the concerned authorities to use all their available means for Hanif’s treatment.

Although this legendary athlete of Pakistan underwent a surgery in 2013 but the cancer spread with time. Chemotherapy is no more an effective option for further treatment. The new required treatments are very expensive. Hanif’s family can obviously not afford the entire expenses of the expensive lung cancer treatment. Expenses of this treatment cannot be covered by sports funds as well.

Hanif Muhammad has played 55 test matches representing Pakistan. He was one of the best batsmen in the world during the peak time of his cricket career. He scored 337 runs against West Indies in a test at Bridgeton in 1957-58. This knock of is regarded as one of the most epic knocks in the entire cricket history. Hanif had the stamina of spending sixteen hours at the crease compiling his runs and letting his team draw the game. Thus, it remains the longest innings in Test history.

Hanif Muhammad has the privilege of being in the inaugural batch of 55 inductees into the ICC’s Hall of Fame, along with Imran Khan and Javed Miandad. It is unfortunate that such a legendary cricket star is going through the toughest times but all the best wishes are with him for his recovery.
