Pak players taking lessons from Inzamam to 'haunt' India

Pakistan players

As India renews its bilateral cricketing ties with Pakistan after five long years, the Pakistan team is taking a few lessons from former skipper Inzamamul Haq on how to beat India. Inzamam, who was appointed as a batting consultant ahead of the series, worked with the team during a week-long camp in Lahore, reports The Nation. Inzamam, who has four one day centuries and over 2000 one day runs against India to his credit, has given many a sleepless nights to Indian bowlers over the years. He said he has been teaching the players how to chase, how to set the target and what is required from the batsmen. The last time Pakistan participated in a T20 tournament was the ICC event in Sri Lanka where the team reached the semis but came out second best against India. The team, this time however, is hoping Inzamam''s experience will help them change the previous outcome. Pakistan''s ODI skipper Misbahul Haq said the biggest advantage was getting to share Inzamam''s experiences, and especially his exploits against India. He helped the players prepare mentally for the series, he added.
