Pakistan team found itself embroiled in a controversy following skipper Inzamam-ul Haq's mysterious absence from two important meetings on the eve of the first cricket one-dayer in the DLF Cup against India.

Inzamam skipped the match referee's meeting and the press conference.

He remained untraceable thereafter, according to team sources.

"He has been unavoidably delayed," coach Bob Woolmer said after Inzamam failed to turn up in time for the mandatory pre-match captains' press conference.

"He is aware of the meeting with the press," said Woolmer.

Later, it was revealed that Inzamam had not attended the crucial match referee's meeting as well.

"It is really strange, the referee's meeting was very crucial," sources close to the team told PTI.

"We intimated him about the meeting but now we are unable to trace him. We are looking for him," they said.
