Inzamam falls cheaply yet again for Yorkshire


inziFormer Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, in England on a short-term county cricket contract with Yorkshire, failed yet again as he managed just nine runs in his team’s Pro40 Division Two limited overs match against Surrey, here at the North Marine Road Ground on Sunday.

Yorkshire, who chose to bat first after winning the toss, were bowled out for a modest 145 in 33.3 overs of the allotted 40 overs by the tea interval. Inzamam, batting at number five, made nine runs in 16 minutes off 13 balls although he hit two boundaries.

He was declared leg-before to medium-fast Chris Jordan, who has come from Barbados and ended with figures of 3-28 from his eight overs. Former Pakistan pace bowler Mohammad Akram, now a British citizen, took three wickets for 35 runs in seven overs.

Yorkshire had slumped to 58-8 before the left-handed David Wainwright (26) and skipper Darren Gough, the former England fast bowler, lifted their team with a 72-run ninth-wicket stand. Gough hit an unbeaten 49 off 53 balls with five fours and two sixes.

Yorkshire are currently on top of the Pro40 Division Two table with three wins from their previous four matches, that have fetched them seven points.

Inzamam has replaced compatriot Younis Khan at Yorkshire, after the latter returned to Pakistan to prepare for his team’s Twenty20 World Cup campaign. Inzamam had failed to get going also on his debut when he played an English County Championship Division One match here at the same venue.

He was dismissed for a mere eight runs on Thursday while Yorkshire ran up a total of 561 for seven declared.

Warwickshire were thrashed by an innings and 210 runs inside three days and Yorkshire remained on top of the championship table, just ahead of holders Sussex.
