As net practices are in full swing ahead of the Pakistan Super League's sixth edition in Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Stadium, the Pakistan Cricket Board shared a fun fact about Peshawar Zalmi's batting coach, Inzamam-ul-Haque.
The PCB shared a picture of Inzamam on Instagram in which he could be seen during the net practices, trying to show his team some bowling techniques.
The board also shared a fun fact about Inzamam.
"#DidYouKnow Inzamam-ul-Haq took a wicket on the very first ball of his ODI career. He dismissed Brian Lara for 45 at the Iqbal Stadium, Faisalabad in 1991," wrote the PCB.
Second-placed Peshawar Zalmi will resume their Pakistan Super League campaign on June 10 when they take on last year's runners up Lahore Qalandars.
Zalmi is currently number 2 on the point table with 6 points in 5 matches. They had won three and lost two when the tournament was being played in Karachi.
The Wahab Riaz-led team are second-placed on the basis of the net run rate as they share the same number of points as table toppers Karachi Kings.
