Inzamam ul Haq on Danish Kaneria

Inzamam ul Haq mentioned that Danish Kaneria had played 80 percent of his career under Inzamam’s captainship, and that he had treated the spinner well as well as equal to everyone else.

“But I’m very disappointed and shocked to read media reports in which Danish claims he was not treated well. I think he he played 80% of his international cricket under my leadership and I had a very good relationship with him as I had with all the players.

“He [Kaneria] was one of my main bowlers so I always remained in touch with him. I can tell you he was very comfortable and treated well like all the team-mates.”

When discussing Younus Khan and the allegation against him by Grant Flower, Inzamam ul Haq showed his support for the batsman.

“I just can’t believe what Grant has been saying. I played with Younus for a long time and I know him very well. Younis is someone who can never show knife to anyone, “ Inzamam said.

“I am surprised why Grant is speaking about it now. I think sometime an individual wants to remain in the media limelight. Imagine such claims after more than three years have no value. Further, I never heard such incident while I was the chief selector. To me this statement has no value.”
