Cricket is a gentleman’s game and it should remain that way. There are certain limitations that everyone should learn to follow. Crowd and cricketers should maintain a level of decency but there was one such ugly incident when a Canada-based Indian teased Pakistani legend Inzamam-ul-Haq.
He was on the field with some disgraceful and distasteful remarks. It was Inzamam-ul-Haq vs Indian spectator then. The former skipper of Pakistan is known for his wonderful and scintillating stroke play. His lazy elegance and touch on the back foot along with his extravaganza power striking is one of his major aspects.
Besides, he is well-known for his comical running between the wickets as well. Moreover his command over England language during the presentation while he was the captain was quite funny as well. But despite all this, a cricketer or anyone for that matter should not be made fun of because of his appearance or anything.
An international match was played India and Pakistan in Toronto in 1997 when a crowd was allowed to bring megaphone into the stadium. Usually when such instruments are allowed in a stadium, the crowd generally loses their emotions as it happened when the incident became Inzamam-ul-Haq vs Indian spectator.
When Shiv Kumar Thind started to use foul and indecent words for the big man, it heated him up. While fielding at first slip, he was moved at third man position where from behind the stands, the man was teasing him up. As soon as the Indian spectator made another teasing move, he was beaten by Inzamam.
Inzamam-ul-Haq climbed the advertising hoard, leapt the stands, headed mercilessly to Thind, beat the hell out of him and after grabbing him from his tee shirt, brought him down and tried to punish him with the bat before the intervention of security officers and crowd ceased him. It was terrible and ugly as Inzamam was provoked. Later the matter was solved with mutual consent and the matter between Inzamam-ul-Haq vs Indian spectator was closed.
