He was arrested by the police - and tried to be cocky a$$, and filed a complaint against Inzi after ignoring requests from Sachin and Azharuddin.

lol, and funnily enough, police did some more investigation and also filed a charge against this mental midget spectator after eyewitnesses account of him throwing the megaphone at inzi.

If convicted, he would’ve lost his Canadian residency status and thus leading a deportation back to India.

And he immediately settled the case with Inzimam and dropped his compliant.

Ha !! So much for his self proclaimed pride when Sachin and Azhar asked him earlier to not file the complaint against Inzi and he said, “You can kiss my feet but I won’t stop even at the request of Indian prime minister”

His name was Shiv Kumar or something.
Wow, interesting story. I only knew of inzamam going into the crowd but not what happened before and after. I'm assuming that's why they stopped the canadian series, or did they play a few after that?

Sahara Cup was played 3 times 1996 to 1998. Possibly as an alternative to popular Sharjah tournaments which were the rage in 1980s and 1990s.
Due to political tensions, many times bilateral series between India and Pakistan used to get cancelled. Neutral venues provided entertainment in this regard.
I think that people behind organising Sahara Cup like Lalit Modi, Sahara Group later on dominated Cricket administration in India with things like IPL. So it was a forgotten story once political tensions worsened in 1999.

Recently one cricket series of retired players was organised in USA with likes of Tendulkar, Akram Sehwag Shoaib playing there. Demand is there from expat population. Lets see if one day we see World Cup or some T20 tournament in USA !!!

Biggest problem is the time zone. They always want a prime time TV audience in India. It is difficult to get whatever time they organise cricket in USA. Nowadays generation will not get up at 4 AM to listen Radio Commentary or wake up past midnight to see India play.
