Imam-ul-Haq, the opening batsman of Pakistan, has failed to capture the hearts of Pakistani fans despite being one of the consistent performers of the unit. While his Test batting leaves a lot to be desired, the elegant lefty averages over 53 in ODI cricket, scoring 7 centuries and 6 half-centuries in 37 innings.
All that wasn’t able to satisfy the fans as they kept calling him ‘Parchi’ which is a derogatory word used for a selection based on nepotism. Recently, the 24-year old cricketer responded to this tag in the media session of Peshawar Zalmi in Karachi.
Imam said that the tag is now in front of everyone and he started to enjoy it as it motivates him to do better in every game. He further added that it is an honor for him to represent a franchise like Peshawar and promised to come hard in the forthcoming edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Imam is likely to get in action on February 21 against Karachi Kings in the iconic National Stadium.
