Inzamam-ul-Haq is a combination of strength and subtlety. He plays shots all round the wicket, is especially strong off his legs, and unleashes ferocious pulls and lofted drives. He is known to keep a cool head in a crisis and has succeeded Javed Miandad as Pakistan's premier batsman, but his hapless running between wickets is legendary and most dangerous for his partners. When bowling against New Zealand in Lahore in 2001-02 he scored 329, the second-highest Test score by a Pakistani and the tenth highest by anyone. He was dropped out from the team briefly, but then came back to form, scoring a brilliant unbeaten 138 and guiding Pakistan to a thrilling one-wicket win against Bangladesh at Multan. He was rewarded with the captaincy of the team, and lead them to victory in the Test series in New Zealand. He gave marvelous results, when he took a team thin on bowling resources to India and drew the Test series with a rousing performance in the final Test, Inzamam's 100th. After scoring a magnificent 184, Inzamam lead the team astutely on a tense final day and took Pakistan to victory. Since that day, Inzamam has gone from strength to strength as captain and premier batsman. In 2005 he scored a hundred against West Indies and set the record matchwinning centuries, amongst the best among modern-day batsmen. As captain, he never looked more a leader, uniting a young, inexperienced team and turning them, once again, into a force to matter globally.
