Inzaman-ul-Haq made a disclosure about the 1999 Test among India and Pakistan in Chennai, saying the excusal of Sourav Ganguly, who was given out got by wicket-attendant Moin Khan, in India’s subsequent innings was “a doubtful one.” Inzaman was talking on India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin’s YouTube show DRS With Ash when Ashwin represented the previous Pakistan skipper an inquiry concerning the said excusal. “There were two people involved in the affair. One Azhar Mahmood and the other Moin Khan. When Sourav played the shot, it hit Azhar Mahmood first on his body and then Moin Khan caught it,” said Inzamam.
“I cannot clearly tell you about it because Azhar was not playing that Test match. I was unwell in the second innings so in my place Azhar was the substitute. I was not on the ground at that time but I can say that the catch was a doubtful one.”
Replays of that ball by Saqlain Mushtaq demonstrated that the ball had ricocheted off the ground subsequent to hitting Mahmood’s leg, before Moin jumped forward and snatched the ball directly close to Ganguly on the pitch.
The on-field umpires got together for some time after Pakistan’s allure and announced Ganguly out.
Ganguly’s excusal decreased India to 82 for 5 in their pursuit of 271 runs in the fourth innings.

In an intently battled challenge, India were bowled out for 258 in spite of Sachin Tendulkar’s 136 and lost the match by a restricted edge of 12 runs.
On Inzamam’s affirmation, Ashwin, who had watched the match as a child, stated: “Inzy bhai, I have to salute you now because you admitted that it was indeed a doubtful catch.”
