Inzaman-ul-Haq vs ENGLAND (2005)

Football News

This suicide run from Inzaman was a little unexpected, due to his stationary sensibilities at the crease. Seeing him rooted to the spot and running out a teammate was a common sight, but on this occasion his backing up cost him his wicket, when he was just three runs short of a century.

The match situation was that Pakistan were trying to build as big a first innings lead as possible, and Inzi had scored his 97 off of 101 balls, smashing two sixes in the process. But eagerness to reach three figures and bring about the declaration proved costly.

Coming down the track as Naved-ul-Hasan faced a delivery from Liam Plunkett, Inzaman was run-out by opposing captain, Michael Vaughan, which also signified the end of the Pakistan innings.

What was significant was the fact that Inzaman-ul-Haq retired from Test cricket, just four runs shy of becoming his country’s leading run scorer. A boundary on that fateful December day could have made the difference ultimately.
