The second farce that happened in Pakistan cricket was the news that Inzamam will return to international cricket tomorrow after the first ODI against West Indies was washed out without even the toss having taken place.The ICC now seems to be veering around to the idea that it was a bad decision in the first place. In a media release dated yesterday, the ICC announced that for this World Cup, that earlier decision wouldn't hold good. i.e. if a toss took place and rain prevented any play, then the reserve day would have a new toss and the teams could be changed. The first day wouldn't count towards player caps and that it would count as one match having taken place, not two.
The ICC decided, quite stupidly in my opinion, in 2004 that a game was deemed to have started as long a the toss had taken place. So, in the light of there not having been a toss at Rawalpindi, that game doesn't count as a recorded one-day international.
Hence Inzamam should actually be sitting out for one more game to ensure that he completes his ban period of four one-day internationals.
