CHENNAI: Huma, the wife of former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram, has died in a hospital in Chennai on Sunday after developing heart and kidney complications.
According to sources, she was admitted to the Apollo Hospital last Tuesday after her condition deteriorated on board an air ambulance flying from Lahore to Singapore, where she was due to be treated.
Huma, 42, is survived by two sons, and arrangements are underway to fly her body back to Pakistan, hospital sources said.
Ijaz Butt, the PCB chairman, also expressed his grief over the demise.
"We are with Wasim and his family at this hour of need and pray to God to give them strength to bear this great and irreparable loss," he said.
A trained medical practitioner herself, Huma had a brief stint as psychologist of the Pakistan team in the mid 1990s.
