Inzy confirmed as World Cup capt

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have confirmed that Inzamam-ul-Haq will captain the team in next year’s World Cup in the West Indies.

Inzamam took over as captain in October 2003 and recently lead Pakistan to a 2-0 Test series win and a 3-1 one-day series win over the West Indies.

Inzamam had only recently returned from the ban he received because of the Darrell Hair ball tampering saga in England earlier this year.

PCB chairman Dr Nasim Ashraf said the following on the annoucement, “we have decided to retain Inzamam as we want to maintain continuity and stability in the team.”

Ashtraf went onto say “We feel that Inzamam had done an admirable job in binding the team together in difficult conditions and despite facing criticism.”
