Pakistan cricket captain Inzamam-ul Haq did a U-turn on Tuesday and agreed to play in the Super Series, less than 24 hours after snubbing the ICC event, between a World XI and world champions Australia.

Inzamam, who had made a similar threat last week to withdraw from the captains' conference and ICC annual awards, retracted his statement after he met Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan on Tuesday morning.

The PCB, in a brief statement, said Shaharyar had invited Inzamam to his residence on Monday evening and tried to make him understand the mix-up in communication between ICC General Manager Dave Richardson and PCB Director Cricket Operations Saleem Altaf.

"The chairman advised Inzamam-ul Haq that in the interest of Pakistan cricket he should participate in the Super Series in Australia. Inzamam responded positively to the chairman's advice and agreed to play in the Test match at Sydney.

"Inzamam is now looking forward to participating in the Sydney Test between Australia and the World XI," the PCB said in a brief media statement.

"The PCB admitted its mistake but at the same time, we tried to make him realize that his withdrawal from the Test team would send wrong vibes across," a Board official said.
