Imam-ul-Haq had a shining start to his international career when he scored a century on his debut in ODI cricket against Sri Lanka in 2017. Since then, the left-handed batsman has grown in stature and has displayed sizzling performances against top oppositions in the world.
Despite his consistency, the 23-year-old has never been immune to criticism with people claiming his selection in the team was influenced by his blood ties with former chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq. He recently claimed to be an emotional person on the cricket field, who is ever willing to prove his doubters wrong.
“When I go onto the pitch, I have so much on my mind. I’m an emotional guy, I’m an aggressive guy. I’m a personality who wants to take people on. I cry a lot when Pakistan lose. If people criticize Babar Azam or Yasir Shah or Mohammad Amir, it hurts me. I know how difficult it is to be in this team, the difficulties we have to suffer to be here,” he said in an interview with a publication.
