She was admitted to the hospital on Oct 20 in an emergency situation, suffering from fever. The air ambulance carrying her from Lahore to Singapore had stopped in Chennai for refuelling when her condition worsened.
Wasim was at her bedside for the last five days.
Arrangements are being made to fly her body back to Pakistan, hospital sources told local media.
Huma’s body is expected to be flown to Lahore early on Monday. According to television reports, she would be laid to rest by the afternoon in Defence.
Besides her husband, Huma is survived by sons Taimur and Akbar.
A trained medical practitioner herself, Huma had stints with some of the leading hospitals in Pakistan as a psychologist and a hypnotherapist.
In the mid-1990s, during Wasim’s second stint as captain, Huma also worked with the Pakistan team for a while as a psychological counsellor. Wasim also regularly credited her for helping him psychologically, especially in the aftermath of the players’ revolt against his captaincy in 1993-94.
