'India will take 10 years to rebuild'
Kolkata, Jan 4: Intikhab Alam was overcome by nostalgia when he stepped on to the Eden Gardens on Thursday. “I vividly remember the time when I played here as a member of the touring Pakistan team in 1960. That was a very interesting Test match. We had lost six quick wickets for 120-odd runs before Mushtaq Mohammad and myself put on a 100-run partnership. It all seems like yesterday,” said the former Pakistan captain, who was among 19 former Indian and Pakistani greats to have been felicitated at the halfway stage of the second ODI on Thursday.
The leg-spinning allrounder, who also took four wickets in that Test, still relishes the way he had castled star Indian batsman Abbas Ali Baig in the drawn match. ‘Inty,’ as he is fondly called, was all praise for young opener Nasir Jamshed, who on Thursday scored his second straight century of the ongoing ODI series against India.
“Jamshed is an exceptional talent. He was injury-prone earlier, but I am really very pleased with the way he has come on. It is good to see him fulfill expectations,” Alam said.
