Imam-ul-Haq, Pakistan’s top-order batsman, has opened up about the criticism he faces in cricket despite good performances. Imam is criticized over his selection in the team because of nepotism as he is the nephew of former chief selector of Pakistan, Inzamam-ul-Haq.
Imam said that criticism helps me grow stronger day by day. Also, he added that his performances prove why he is still playing for Pakistan. "Sometimes criticism helps me become stronger. I have proved things with my performances and I will keep on doing so. I can’t stop people calling me whatever" Imam-ul-Haq said in an interview.
The left-handed batsman has represented Pakistan in 10 Test matches, 36 ODIs, and 1 T20I. Averaging 54.58 in ODIs, Imam currently possesses the highest among the all active Pakistani players in the format. His performance in the red-ball cricket has not been up to the mark yet, but the way he is going, he might gradually become one of the best openers of Pakistan.
