Inzamam by name, aloo by shape..

Most cricketers who are not comfortable in conversing in English go prepared for some standard questions that are asked from them when commentators chat with them during the awards ceremony.

Inzamam was once asked a different question after Pakistan won the match for which he was not prepared. He always had a standard response to the first question but this time..

Tony Greig: "So Inzy, that's fantastic, your wife is pregnant for the second time!"

Inzamam: "As-salam walequm. Bismillah ur-Rehman nir-Rahim. All credit goes to the boys everyone worked hard for it especially Afridi it was tight situation when he went in without his strokes it not have been possible.He was pulling the good balls also Bob Woolmer keeping close watch on progress and giving instructions.It's all team effort which pulled us out of big hole. Inshallah, we all will work together as team put in big effort and deliver good result all the time."

I found this on the Internet, and I was immediately about to carve out my interview with Inzy. Surely someone would have done this before, I thought. Goes without saying I was right there. Check this out. Nothing gross there, gets slapstick at times, but a worthwhile read..
