In the past, there have been many serious conflicts between India and Pakistan. The main rivals have met in several matches. One of the most watched sporting rivalries, India vs Pakistan occasionally stirs up a controversial moment. Recently, Inzamam-ul-Haq recalled a time in 1999 when Sourav Ganguly was controversially rejected in the Chennai test.

Ganguly hit a drive for cover and the ball hit Azhar Mahmood, who was in short cover. Moin Khan then caught the ball after hitting Mahmood and went up on appeal. The referees on the field were in a little doubt and gathered to make a decision. After some deliberation, they declared Ganguly absent.

But replays showed the ball hit Mahmood and then bounced off the ground before Moin Khan caught it. It is considered one of the worst arbitration decisions.

Speaking to Ravichandran Ashwin on his YouTube show DRS With Ash, Inzamam admitted that he also viewed Ganguly’s dismissal as questionable.

“There were two people involved in the case. One Azhar Mahmood and the other Moin Khan. When Sourav played the blow, he hit Azhar Mahmood first on his body, then Moin Khan grabbed him, ”said Inzamam.

“I can’t tell you clearly because Azhar was not playing this test match. I was not well in the second heat so in my place Azhar was the substitute. I was not in the field at the time but I can say that the capture was questionable.
