Former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq is regarded as one of the best batsmen of his generation with a shy, soft-spoken personality. He mostly did his talking with the willow and hardly got into heated, on-field bust-ups. However, Inzamam once lost his cool during a match between India and Pakistan in Sahara Cup. Inzamam in 1997 had nearly beaten up a fan with a bat.

During India vs Pakistan in 1997 Sahara Cup, Shiv Kumar Thind, a Canada-based Indian fan constantly sledged Inzamam-ul-Haq from the stands. Thind, who carried a megaphone, was backed up by a bunch of Indian supporters during the 2nd ODI at the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club.

"O mote, sidha khara ho [O fatty, stand straight], mota aaloo, sara alloo [fat potato, rotten potato]," he repeatedly sledged the Pakistani.

However, Inzy ignored the chants initially but lost his cool as he jumped the fence with a bat in an attempt to attack Thind.

Recently, Inzamam-ul-Haq made the headlines after he was alleged of selecting his son in the Pakistan junior cricket team. Former chief selector Abdul Qadir had claimed that Inzamam - now the chief selector of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) - was behind the selection of Ibtisam-ul-Haq (Inzamam's son) in the junior cricket team.
