Inzaman-ul-Haq vs AUSTRALIA (1999 World Cup)

Football News

Pakistan’s leading century procurer was a model batsman for young players to take note of, unless they are hoping to learn about running between the wickets. Despite a flawless technique that allowed him to knock the ball around the park with ease, Inzaman-ulHaq was never famed for impressive speed across the ground.

A lack of pace from the big man was no more evident than it was throughout the 1999 World Cup in England, when he was involved in several comical mix-ups with partnering
batsmen. Two run-outs in as many overs towards the end of a Super Six match with Australia didn’t help Pakistan in their attempt to set a high target.

Only Marvan Attapattu has been run-out more times in One Day Internationals, but Inzy wasn’t the first to be walking back to the pavilion. His reluctance to run resulted in both he and Youssuf Yohanna standing at the striker’s end, leaving the latter to trudge off of the field.

But Inzaman wouldn’t be far behind, after being crunched by a Stephen Fleming delivery that saw him crumble to the floor. Meanwhile Wasim Akram ran down the pitch to take a
single, this time leaving his captain stranded and out for 81.
