Cricketing Cliche 13

Captain's innings or Captain's knock.

That is exactly what Inzamam-ul-Haq needs to play now that three early wickets have fallen: a "captain's innings". He needs to (cliche coming up) lead from the front, and (one more) take the bull by the horns. He began by hitting three fours in an L Balaji over, thus (and another!) taking the attack to the bowlers. Can he (sorry, two more) seize the initiative and snatch the momentum?

India's bowlers, of course, will try to (last cliche of this post) keep him on a leash.

(Captain's knock submitted by Varun Singh.)
