In fact, in 1997, a Test match was being played between India and Pakistan, in which Inzamam-ul-Haq was also a part. In such a situation, during this match between the arch-rivals, a fan teased Inzamam-ul-Haq by calling him a potato. Significantly, hearing this, the veteran player of Pakistan could not stop himself and reached to kill the fan sitting in the stands. However, Inzamam was stopped by the security personnel from doing so. After this whole incident, Inzamam was banned for 2 matches by the ICC i.e. International Cricket Council. At the same time, the audience had also disclosed that if the security guard had not come there, Inzamam would have hit the fan on the head.
