Lahore, June 22 (IANS) Legendary Pakistan cricketer Zaheer Abbas has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in a London hospital after his health "deteriorated severely", a report in Cricket Pakistan said on Wednesday.

The report added that the 74-year-old former cricketer, who played 78 Tests and scored 5000-plus runs at an average of nearly 45 with 12 centuries to his credit, was shifted to St. Mary's Hospital's ICU in critical condition.

The former Test skipper was inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame in 2020 alongside South Africa's Jacques Kallis and former Australia woman cricketer Lisa Sthalekar.
