Javed Miandad and Abdul Qadir left the field at lunch time and Sachin was asked to field. Imran deployed him at long-on and soon Kapil Dev hit a skier in his direction. Despite running 15 metres, Sachin could not reach the ball.
Recounting the incident in his recently released book, 'Playing it My Way', Sachin remembers complaining to a friend later that he could have taken the catch had he been positioned at mid-on instead of long-on.
"I don't know whether Imran Khan remembers this or has any idea that I once fielded for his Pakistan team," writes Sachin in his book.
