Former Pakistan cricket captain Inzamam-ul-Haq is one of the great batsmen. In his career, he brought a lot of success to Pakistan as a batsman and captain. Inzamam-ul-Haq doesn’t show much aggression on the field, but during a match he was called and went to the stand to kill a fan. In the same match, many times the fans called him aloo, aloo.
Now on this issue Inzamam-ul-Haq’s teammate and great cricketer Waqar Younis revealed that Inzamam-ul-Haq was not actually for himself, but went to fight for Sangeeta Bijlani, the wife of the then captain of the Indian cricket team Muhammad Azharuddin.
“It’s true that someone called him a potato in this match, but he was not angry,” he said in The Greatest Rivalry podcast. In fact, someone in the crowd was saying wrong things about Muhammad Azharuddin’s wife Sangita Bijlani.
Integration is integration, they didn’t like it. At that time there was a good friendship between the players, we respect each other. He added that Inzamam-ul-Haq usually used to field on slip. Asking the captain that day, he decided to field on the boundary. He added that he made the decision and I think Saleem Malik was the captain (Rameez Raja was the real captain in the match), then Inzamam-ul-Haq asked the captain to send me to Fine League or Third Man, then he went to field.
Inzamam-ul-Haq asked to call the 12th player, he also called. He took the call and entered the stand and grabbed the fan and took him down from the stand. Inzamam-ul-Haq had to be punished for doing so. He was suspended for two matches. Inzamam-ul-Haq had to apologize and Azhar came forward to help him.
Muhammad Azharuddin went and talked to this fan. Due to them the matter did not reach the court and it was settled out of court. However, it further strengthened the friendship between the two countries.
