1st ODI: Pakistan v India, 13 Mar 2004

Inzamam-ul-Haq batted like a dream. Marshalling his considerable talents well, he used his experience to devastating effect. It never seemed like it, and yet Inzamam motored along at more than a run per ball, his 122 coming off 104 deliveries. But then, with Inzamam, it never does seem like it. Singles are nudged. Twos are impeccably placed. Fours are casually stroked. Sixes are nonchalantly tonked. Inzamam's century, along with Yousuf Youhana's 73, were Pakistan's bulwarks, the reasons why Moin Khan could face the last ball with six needed to win.
