Karachi: National chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq is "disappointed" at Pakistan not playing India in Test matches but believes that his country can snatch back the No. 1 ranking from the Indians by doing well against other countries.

"What can one say on this Indian refusal since 2007 to play us in Test matches. It is disappointing for me as I have played and captained against India in both countries and I know how much these matches mean to people of both countries and cricket world," Inzamam told PTI.

"There is nothing we can do but Pakistan is still capable of beating other teams and get back the No. 1 Test spot from India," the former Test captain said.

He said Pakistan deserved a lot of credit for even having overcome the issue of not being able to play at home since last six years. "India is playing 13 Tests at home in the next few months, we have not played at home since 2009. But I still believe Pakistan can do well anywhere and against anyone," he said.
