Inzamam: 'The more you captain, the more you learn'

After Pakistan fought their way back from 2-0 down in the one-day series against India, a delighted Pakistan captain, Inzamam ul-Haq, addressed the media.

On the importance of Younis and Malik
Malik has been performing for a while and Younis had a good time in the Tests. They are good boys. Now they are seniors and it is their responsibility to perform.

On the team being weak
The team was not weak, but young.

The pitch?
The pitch was slow and low.

On what he has learnt as captain
[Jocularly] I get more angry. The more you captain, the more you learn.

About his bad back
There's a bit of a problem, and the physio has advised three weeks' rest.

About the extensive travel
[Again jokes] Travel-travel karke meri kamar chali gayi hai [I've travelled so much my back has given way].

About the amount of cricket played
There is so much cricket around the world, you just have to get used to it. If there is big gap between matches, that can also harm.

On Afridi's innings
Afridi's 40 was important. He lifted the pace, and India became defensive.
