KARACHI (AFP) - Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq was pleased Thursday when the result of the infamous 2006 Oval Test was changed from forfeit to a draw, saying it justified his stance. "I am happy and relieved, my stance is vindicated," he said, after the International Cricket Council (ICC) changed the result on the request of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) during its annual meeting. The then Pakistan captain Inzamam led a boycott after Australian umpire Darrell Hair and West Indian colleague Billy Doctrove accused Pakistan of ball-tampering during the fourth Test against England. "Pakistan was cleared of tampering so the decision of forfeit was wrong because we objected to allegations of tampering and the decision to change the result proves it was wrong," said Inzamam who retired last year. Umpire Hair was later banned from the ICC elite umpire's panel. The Australian only returned after completing a "rehabilitation programme" last September - a reinstatement Inzamam still protests. "I think Hair, being the central figure in that Oval case, should not have been allowed to umpire at international level. He has returned to international cricket which is not correct," said Inzamam. PCB chairman Dr Nasim Ashraf said the decision showed there was respect for Pakistan among the ICC members. "It was unheard of before that the result of a match is changed after two years," Ashraf told AFP. "We are thankful to all member boards especially England and Wales Cricket Board who did not object to the decision."
