Inzamam-ul Haq, who has stepped down as the captain after Pakistan’s humiliating exit from the World Cup, on Thursday suggested having one captain for both the Test and one-day sides for practical reasons.
“I just feel that when you have one captain the players are also comfortable in both formats of the game as they know their captain’s style and thinking. It is not easy adjusting for players to playing under different captains in different forms of the game,” he said.
Inzamam, who has also retired from One-day Internationals (ODIs), has made it clear he wants to continue playing Test matches and said he was not surprised by allegations levelled against him after Pakistan’s poor performance in the World Cup.
On the charges that he was an autocratic captain and ran a one-man show, Inzamam said in the Pakistan cricket history there were quite a few captains who were strong and did things their own way.
“Imran Khan is a prime example. He was a very strong captain compared to others. So if I tried to be strong what is wrong with that? But to say I didn’t consult the selectors or other players while taking decisions is wrong,” he explained.
