Former Pakistan cricket captain Wasim Akram's wife Huma, who was suffering from a "mysterious" fever, died at a hospital in Chennai on Sunday.

Huma (42) breathed her last at the Apollo Hospitals following multiple organ failure around 9.30 am, hospital sources said.

She was admitted to the hospital on October 20 after developing an "emergency situation" when an air ambulance flying her to Singapore from Lahore halted at the city airport for scheduled refuelling.

Huma was put on ventilator support at the intensive care unit and her condition remained critical since then.
