In the latest controversy to hit Pakistan cricket, wicketkeeper Zulqarnain Haider went missing after the fourth ODI against South Africa in Dubai on November 5. Haider, who fled from Dubai to London, said he was retiring from international cricket after reportedly receiving threats from unidentified people following Pakistan's victory in the fourth ODI. Later, after safety assurances by the Pakistan government, he returned home in April 2011. Here's the full coverage of the controversy.
