Imam plays down criticism on his batting

Pakistan’s consistent opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq fell just on the wrong moment in the World Cup clash against Australia, as he gloved a short ball down the leg-side from Pat Cummins. Looking well-settled to carry on and go big in Pakistan’s pursuit of the target of 308, Imam consumed 75 deliveries for 53 runs.

Imam was dismissed in a similar fashion against West Indies too in his side’s opening game of the tournament, however, the left-hander feels this does not point towards a weakness regarding playing shots on the leg-side.

“I was unlucky that it touched the glove. That particular shot is my strength and I have made many runs playing same shot. That delivery was meant to be hit for four and I wanted to guide it towards boundary but was a bit unlucky,” the young opener claimed.

“It was just matter of luck, I don’t think this is something which can be termed as my weakness,” he added. Imam and fellow opening partner Fakhar Zaman laid a strong foundation in the victory over England but haven’t found the required consistency in the rest of the games.
