In a recent interview in the show ‘Beyond The Field’ with Raunak Kapoor, Saqlain Mushtaq said: “Actually I got married in December 1998. My wife used to stay in London so in the 1999 World Cup I stayed with my wife and there was a set pattern – work hard and train like a true professional with the team during day time and in the evenings I used to spend time with my wife."

"But suddenly they said that our families will be sent back home. So I told our head coach Richard Pybus, that everything is going so smooth then why this sudden change. I am someone who likes to keep things as they are and don’t feel the need to try out new things for no reason. I decided that I’m not gonna follow this,” Saqlain said while replying to a fan’s question about the incident during the interview. 

Saqlain Mushtaq made the crazy attempt after the Pakistan Cricket Board had suddenly asked the players to send their family back in the middle of the tournament during the 1999 World Cup. Further elaborating on the incident, the off-spinner, said how he hid his wife in the cupboard when Pakistan team’s manager and officials came to check. 

“The manager, coaches used to come and check our rooms. Some players also used to come for a chat. So one day when I heard a knock on the door, I told my wife to go and hide inside the cupboard. The manager came, had a look and went back. Another official came and went back. And all this while my wife was inside the cupboard. Then Azhar (Mahmood) and Yusuf came to have a chat with me about the new rules. They suspected that my wife was in the room. After they insisted I gave in. So I asked my wife to finally come out of the closet. I managed to get away with it as after we lost the final to Australia, the atmosphere was very heavy, everyone was down. I went back to my hotel, checked out and told my wife to go to my apartment which was also in London. I used to play county cricket so they had they had given me an apartment there,” added Saqlain.

The renowned off-spinner has represented Pakistan in 49 Tests and 169 ODIs so far. He had also picked up 208 and 288 wickets respectively. Watch the interesting and hilarious video below:
