Inzamam-Prabhakar combo works for Afghanistan

Inzamam-ul-Haq and Manoj Prabhakar's appointments as the head coach and bowling coach of Afghanistan seemed to have hit off already.

Afghanistan are on a roll having taken a 2-0 lead in the five-match against Zimbabwe in Shahrjah, while they also enjoyed a series success away from home against the same opposition. The duo, too, seems to have gotten along really well.

The former Pakistan captain stated that he is "enjoying the experience of working with Manoj Prabhakar", who is a part of the coaching staff in the Afghanistan cricket team.

While Inzamam joined the Afghanistan team as head coach three months back, Prabhakar signed on as bowling coach of the Afghanistan outfit more recently.

"It is a different experience for us (him and Prabhakar)," Inzamam told PTI in an interview. "(Especially,) given the cricket rivalry associated with Pakistan and India. No one would expect a Pakistani and Indian to be working on the coaching staff of an international team. But I am enjoying this experience because despite all the issues surrounding relations and cricket matters Pakistan and Indian players have lot in common," Inzamam said.

Inzy said Prabhakar had made a difference to the team and was strong in his core coaching area. Prabhakar's inclusion was also helpful since the Afghanistan team now held its home training camps in Noida near New Delhi instead of Sharjah.
