He also revealed how he cried after being yelled at for half an hour and was depressed throughout the night. Also Read - Greg Spoilt His Name, Could've Been a Good Batting Coach: Mohammad Kaif
“I once got out early. I had mentioned this before; a senior player was really harsh with me on that day. I don’t think I have ever faced that level of harshness as on that day. I cried for half an hour. I was taking a shower and kept crying and I was depressed the entire night after that,” Inzamam revealed according to Cricket Pakistan.

The 1992 World Cup-winner also recalled how he found himself beside Imran Khan in the flight and realised that things had gone from bad to worse. Also Read - Would Want to Take on The Challenge of Facing Jasprit Bumrah: Shan Masood
“Next day, while boarding our plane, I was trying to find my seat. I found out that Imran Khan had the seat next to mine. I thought that when the time is bad it is completely bad. I had to listen to so much yesterday and today is going to be no different. I sat in my seat,” he added.
Arguably one of the best Pakistan batsmen of his generation, Inzamam was instrumental in Pakistan’s 1992 WC triumph. He scored a brilliant 60 off 37 balls against New Zealand in the semi-final and followed it up with a crucial 42 against England in the summit clash.
