Multan, Feb 16, 2006
Inzamam backs injury-hit PakistanSTART:
Feb 16, 2006Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq is backing his injury-hit side to have enough firepower to level the one-day series against India on Thursday.
India won the last two matches to lead 2-1 so Pakistan need a win in Inzamam's home town Multan to stay in touch.
The hosts are without front-line bowlers Shoaib Akhtar and Shahid Afridi for the rest of the series.
Paceman Umar Gul is also a doubt with a back injury and Pakistan have drafted Mohammad Sami and Rao Iftikhar into the squad.
Meanwhile, Inzamam's opposite number Rahul Dravid has injury problems of his own ahead of the clash at the Multan Stadium.
Opening batsman Virender Sehwag and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh have flown home and spinning all-rounder Ramesh Powar was brought in last week.
Pakistan (from): Inzamam-ul-Haq (Captain), Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Abdul Razzaq, Kamran Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Arshad Khan, Salman Butt, Rana Naved, Imran Farhat, Faisal Iqbal, Umar Gul, Mohammad Asif, Yasir Arafat, Rao Iftikhar, Mohammad Sami.
India (from): Rahul Dravid (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Dhoni, Irfan Pathan, Sri Sreesanth, Murli Kartik, Zaheer Khan, Ajit Agarkar, Rudra Pratap Singh, Ramesh Powar.
Umpires: Steve Bucknor (West Indies), Asad Rauf (Pakistan).
India Pakistan ODI Result
Feb 16, 2006Won: India by 5 wickets India produced a sublime bowling and fielding performance to set up a five-wicket series winning win over Pakistan in the fourth one-day international.
Pakistan were bundled out for just 161, with Rudra Pratap Singh taking 4-40. Captain Inzamam-ul-Haq hit 49 but the other batsmen were poor and India reached their target in the 33rd over despite a mid-innings collapse.
It was a day when the bowlers were in better form than the batsmen and after India won the toss, all their seamers found a good line and length from the off. Within 13 overs, four batsmen had been dismissed, including Younis Khan for a golden duck - lbw to Pratap Singh. The same bowler removed Shoaib Malik, Imran Farhat and Abdul Razzaq for low scores but Pakistan were given some encouragement with a 68-run stand between Inzamam and Mohammad Yousuf.
India's batsmen were keen to reach the target quickly, playing around Dravid's typically composed innings of 59. Tendulkar and the out-of-form Mohammad Kaif fell for ducks but young left-hander Suresh Raina gave a masterclass in the off-drive to finish with 35 not out off 34 balls. Fourth one-day international, Multan: India 162-5 beat Pakistan 161 by five wickets

Feb 16, 2006Multan Stadium, Multan The Multan Stadium is Pakistan's newest Test venue, having staged its first five-day match only four years ago. Five Pakistan batsmen, including local boy Inzamam-ul-Haq, scored a century in the same innings as Bangladesh were thrashed by an innings and 264 runs. It was a very different story against the same opponents two years later as Pakistan scraped home by one wicket. In 2004, India played their first Test in Pakistan for 14 years and inflicted an innings defeat on the home side.
