Karachi: Nov 28, 2012
 
Former Pakistan cricket captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has hit out at the ex-Australia spin king Shane Warne for criticising Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar for his bad decision during the recently-concluded second Test match between India and England in Mumbai.
 
“The way I look at it Warne has targeted Aleem Dar just to gain cheap publicity. That is all,” Inzamam told Geo Super channel.
 
“He (Warne) tried to pander to Indians,” he added.
 
The Former Australian cricketer turned commentator had lashed out Dar due to umpiring errors and poor decisions taken by him during the ongoing Test series between India and England.
 
“Players get dropped if they have poor form, Aleem Dar has had 2 shockers in India & always has been a bad decision maker! Poor umpire…,” tweeted Warne, who is in India nowadays for commentary in the India-England series.
 
Inzamam called on the International Cricket Council (ICC) to take action against the legendary spinner.
 
“I have never seen a better umpire than Aleem Dar in my entire cricket career,” Inzamam insisted.
 
He was also not happy with the Indian captain, MS Dhoni’s remarks about the umpiring in the second Test at Mumbai, which was convincingly won by England by 10 wickets.
 
“I think it would be best for Dhoni to try to convince his board to use the Umpires Decision Review System (DRS) instead of criticising the umpires,” said the ex-skipper.
 
Inzamam also urged the ICC to ensure the uniform implementation of the DRS in all forms of international cricket.
 
“It is time the ICC get its member nations on the same wavelength as far as the DRS is concerned as it had proven beneficial for the game and teams.”
 
Inzamam, who played 120 Tests, noted that any new rules and regulations from which cricket benefitted needed to be implemented by all boards without any discrepancies.
 
Inzamam, meanwhile, said that he did not think that one could become a good coach by acquiring a few degrees.
 
“No matter what degree you obtain you can’t pass on the same sort of advice that someone of the calibre of Javed Miandad or Wasim Akram can.
 
“I have played so much international and domestic cricket, I don’t need any coaching degrees to teach a youngster what to do.
 
Inzamam said in cricket the most important thing was to mentally prepare a player to deal with pressure.
 
“I don’t think anyone can do this better than players who have played over 100 Tests for their countries,” said Inzamam.
 
Confirming that he has been invited to the national coaching camp for seven days for Pakistan’s tour to India, Inzamam said, “There is not much I can do in seven days. I can’t change technique of the batsmen but I will try to prepare them mentally for what they should expect in India.”
 
Inzamam also said that it was very important for Pakistan to have a batting coach for their tour of South Africa.
 
“It wouldn’t matter that much in India if we don’t have a batting coach but for South Africa it is very important,” stressed Inzamam.
