Inzamam reveals which Pakistan player has really angered him

Inzamam-ul-Haq angry with Danish Kaneria and rubbishes his comments about religious discrimination since he was a Hindu Pakistan cricket

Inzamam-ul-Haq: “I never felt that there was any such thing in our team, that any player treats another player badly if he is a non-Muslim. I never noticed even a single example of any such thing in our team”

Ex-Pakistan captain and chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq admitted that former leg-spinner Danish Kaneria has really angered him with his claims of being discriminated against.

Kaneria claimed that he had been the victim of religious discrimination while playing for Pakistan since he is Hindu.

In fact, it was legendary Pakistan pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar who first made the claim before Kaneria backed it up and called on other players to come forward and confirm this.

However, Inzamam noted that he was captain for a majority of the time that Kaneria played international cricket and added that he never saw or heard anything to back up Kaneria’s discrimination allegations.

“The captain who Danish Kaneria played under the most was me and I never felt that there was any such thing in our team, that any player treats another player badly if he is a non-Muslim. I never noticed even a single example of any such thing in our team,” Inzamam was quoted as saying by Saj Sadiq on Twitter.

“I am not ready to accept Danish Kaneria that we have such small hearts, that we would do a thing like this and that we didn’t accept someone. I think Pakistanis have big hearts and we can accept everyone in our hearts.

“When we went on tours like in Sharjah, Indian and Pakistani players would be in the same hotel and I’d often see players sitting in each other’s rooms, joking around and eating together. So from both sides, I never saw any such thing of not eating together.”

  1. 10 years played Test n other matches; nothing happened nor complained! Then banned for life for corruption in 2012 by ECB n suddenly here is the chaos ! Quote: The ECB disciplinary panel concluded that Kaneria:
    • acted as a recruiter of spot-fixers
    • approached a number of what he saw as potential targets at Essex
    • cajoled and pressurised Westfield into becoming involved, knowing he was young and vulnerable
    • was present when Westfield received his payment for underperforming. Unquote

    • Kaneria was found guilty of match fixing by ECB n not PCB. He was tried in UK by the Management of Essex County Cricket Club and ECB. PCB is not at all involved in the matter in whatsoever manner. How then Kaneria is blaming his Pak team mates of mistreating him. Why he didn’t do it earlier? He was banned for life in 2012 by ECB. There is no reason to believe what he is claiming now.
