"In my opinion, and in the opinion of umpires and match referee whom I have spoken to, the Indian team did not act in any unsportsmanlike manner or against the spirit of the game."

Rahul Dravid reacting to Inzamam's comments

"The Indian fielders appealed when the Peshawar match was in a crucial state. I would not have imagined Rahul Dravid and his team would do such a thing.

"I am not bothered about my dismissal, but an appeal made in an unsportsmanlike manner by the visiting team can have an adverse affect on the relations between the two opponents.

"I have surely impressed on my team not to make much of the Peshawar incident. However, in my personal opinion the appeal was not made in a sporting manner. Instead, it might have left a bad taste in the mouth."

"I was not aware of the exact rules. That's why I stopped the ball with the bat."

"Regarding Greg Chappell's comments about my bowling action being 'different', it was all very unfortunate to hear. He should understand that the ICC has cleared me more than once and this thing has all been done and dusted for about four years and it's no good bringing all this stuff up again."

Shoaib Akhtar on Chappell's comments that his bowling action is 'different'.

"The Indian and Pakistan teams are pretty much similar. We had the edge in this Test because India had three left-arm seam bowlers while we had more variety and mix."

"Chappell has been more than willing to listen to my ideas and my thoughts and I get a very good say. At the end of the day I think he believes that a captain must get what he wants. In fact, in a lot of ways we do a lot of things in my way."

Indian skipper Rahul Dravid on Chappell

"In 2004, Shoaib was struggling and so was Mohammad Sami. Then Umar Gul broke down in Lahore. So, if you analyse our last two years, you will know that we have not played with our best fast bowlers...The only time we played with them was against England (late last year) and we convincingly beat them although Shabbir Ahmed had to sit out."

Pak skipper Inzamam-ul Haq on pacers

"It is a very important series for me as a bowler and for our team. I think I will start with an edge over their (India's) batsmen given my performance against them in India last year."
