Hanif Mohammad, the former Pakistan captain and the game’s first Little Master underwent post chemotherapy CT scan last week.

This was revealed by his two children, son Shahzeb Mohammed and daughter Seema. Speaking exclusively from London, where they are based, Shahzeb Mohammed says, “My dad’s chemotherapy is over. The last one was on 21st of December (on the day when he turned 79). He took therapy relatively well with minimum side effects. Physical appearance wise he looks better. His post therapy CT scan was done last week, and I have delivered the scan to surgeon Robert Hutchins for his opinion”.

In July last year, the Pakistani great was successfully operated (by surgeon Robert Hutchins) for liver cancer. “The medical surveillance/treatment wise our action will depend on recommendation by surgeon Robert Hutchins”, he added.

Hanif Mohammad’s daughter was recently in Karachi to see her father. “I spent nearly two weeks with my father and he seems to have been recovering well”, Seema, said from London.

The family’s appeal for the financial help has not yet been answered. “No news update from PM office, sports ministry or PCB on any sort of financial help”, the son said and it was later also confirmed by Hanif Mohammad on a telephonic chat from Karachi. “My father has submitted his UK medical bills with a covering letter to PCB, sports ministry on the request of PM office (almost six million Pakistani rupees , 35-40 thousand pounds).”

A day before Mr Najam Sethi was removed, the PCB had announced a small amount of 500000 (five hundred thousand rupees) for father but next day Najam Sethi was removed as PCB chairman and no news since. So in a nut shell no news on financial help”, he signed off.

Hanif Mohammad played 55 Tests for his country and the remuneration the players were getting then were peanuts.
