Huma Akram, the wife of former Pakistan fast bowler Wasim Akram, who died on Sunday due to a multiple-organ failure, was buried in Lahore on Monday. Her funeral was attended by hundreds of people, including Wasim's former team-mates Saeed Anwar, Ijaz Ahmed, Mushtaq Ahmed and Moin Khan. Anwar led the funeral prayers.

"Huma's loss is great and I request my fans to pray for me so that I am able to raise my kids," said Wasim, who has two sons, Akbar and Taimur.

Huma was admitted to the Apollo Hospital in Chennai, India, last Tuesday after her condition deteriorated on board an air ambulance flying from Lahore to Singapore, where she was due to be treated at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital. She developed heart and kidney complications and died on Sunday morning.

Huma worked in Pakistan as a psychologist and a hypnotherapist. She also worked with the Pakistan team for a while as a psychological counselor.
