Inzamam-ul-Haq is widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen to have emerged out from Pakistan. His effortless strokeplay used to mesmerize the fans and stun the best of bowlers.

However, one aspect of Inzamam’s game that used to be scrutinized a lot during his playing days was his fitness. Inzi had that tendency to either be run-out or get his partner dismissed in the most bizarre way.

Inzamam played in 378 ODIs in a career spanning around 16 years (1991-2007) and was dismissed run out on 40 occasions.

After 11 years of Inzi’s retirement, his nephew Imam-ul-Haq has given the feel of 'Deja Vu' to cricket fans. During Pakistan’s practice game against Northamptonshire on Monday (May 7), Imam ran his partner Azhar Ali out in a comical fashion.

Imam tapped the ball to the fine leg region and rushed for a single. However, he was watching the ball instead of Azhar Ali, who despite his best attempts to avoid a collision ended up clashing with the batsman. Consequently, Ali was found short of his crease as the direct hit knocked the middle stump out.
