Islamabad, Mar 19(ANI): Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq has urged the Shahid Afridi-led World Cup team against forgetting their former coach Bob Woolmer if they go on to win the tournament on the Indian sub-continent.

“I think Woolmer made a big contribution to Pakistan cricket and if this team win the tournament they should also remember Woolmer,” the Daily Times quoted Inzamam, as saying.

“We prepared very well for the 2007 event, but sadly we exited after the first round, but there was no doubt about our preparations and Woolmer’s hard work ahead of the tournament,” he added.

The 41-year-old further said that Woolmer was a great coach who brought innovation into the game.

“Now when I see coaches using laptops, I remember Woolmer who was the first to use this innovation. At that time people laughed at his using laptops, but now it’s a must for all coaches,” Inzamam said.

Pakistan, who have already qualified for the last eight of the World Cup, will play their final group match against Australia toady. (ANI)
