Pakistan‘s former skipper and current chief selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq, still wishes to play the game, but fitness and age is not on his side. Inzamam, 47, has represented Pakistan 120 Tests and 378 ODIs. He retired from the game in 2007 and was also Pakistan’s skipper in their forgettable World Cup campaign in the same year. Inzamam spoke during the announcement of launch of T-10 league in United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Inzamam told, “I long to play cricket, especially the T20 and the upcoming T10 cricket, but my fitness and age does not allow me.”

On the other hand, UAE will introduce a new cricket format when big hitters Shahid Afridi, Virender Sehwag, Kumar Sangakkara and England s skipper Eoin Morgan feature in a T-10 league in December. The ten-over-a-side matches will spread over 90 minutes (45 minute each side) in Sharjah, the details of which were announced on Tuesday.

Inzamam spoke about T20Is, and stated that he would love to feature in the shortest format. In his 16-year long career, the Pakistani skipper played a solitary T20I as it was introduced close to his retirement.
