Inzamam-ul-Haq, the Pakistan captain, has strongly denied accusations that he was putting players in the team under pressure to pray and that the selection process was linked to religion in any way as the debate over the role of Islam in the Pakistan team gathers steam.

I think accusitions are irrelevant. Nobody can insist others and it did never happen earlier. But as a senior player(also being the Captain) if he reminds his team mates about the importance of regularity of prayer, it cannot be considered as a fault. But I don't think that their selection process is influenced by these things. It that case, is Danish Parabha Shanker Kaneria also praying regularly?:smug: :-D
