Former cricketer Inzamamul Haq ruled out any short cuts to success either in cricket or in the country’s politics as both disciplines were now on the right path.

The legendary batsman made these remarks in a chat with The Express Tribune in Multan. “The only way to get selected in the national team is through hard work and merit, and the same situation can be seen in our political arena where short cuts are not available any more,” he said.

Inzamam said, “The upholding of merit will improve the standards of not only the game but also the passion for the game because it will increase the confidence of every talented person, hence strengthening our beloved game.”

Inzamam said he would be available as a coach for the national team and would be ready to join the squad whenever the PCB calls me.

He said that after years of cricket we understand that there is no other option but to strengthen cricket at district and sub district level.
