Pakistani batsmen played for the team and Indians, for themselves: Inzamam ul Haq

Pakistan and India have not been on good terms either in politics or in cricket since their birth. They have always been two opposite rivals nations. The hatred created by senior officials has stepped into the game f cricket now. The people of both the nation see each other as their enemies who kill each other via social media trolls.

Pakistan and India possessed the strongest cricketing sides 8-9 years back. The men in green and the men in blue used to give their hundred percent in the game. Pakistan Team has been inconsistent recently but India rarely failed to do so.

Inzamam ul Haq, the former Pakistani cricketer, in a live session with Ramiz Raja has claimed that in his time, Indians used to play selfish knocks that totally were for themselves whereas Pakistanis used to play for the team, for the Nation.

Inzamam claimed that Pakistani batsmen if used to go for 30 or 40 runs, were for the sake of their country and when Indians used to hit the fifties and hundreds, they were the possible selfish knocks to have credits for their own.

“When we played against India, their batting was more powerful than us on paper. But even our batsmen scored 30 or 40 runs, it was for the team, but for India, even if they scored 100 runs, they played for themselves. So, that was the difference between the two sides,” Inzamam said during the chat with Ramiz

He also praised the role of Imran Khan, the prime minister of Pakistan, as a skipper of his team, who led the side in the 1992 World Cup as well.

“Imran (Bhai) was not a very technical captain, but he knew how to get the most out of his players. He backed the young players, he backed the players he believed in and this made him a great captain,” he added.
