Imam-ul-Haq: Rising Beyond the Odds
Was Imam-ul-Haq’s journey a result of prodigious talent or privileged connections? He answered this question emphatically, quieting skeptics who questioned his entry into the cricketing arena due to his uncle, Inzamam-ul-Haq, being the chief selector. His international career ignited with a stunning century against Sri Lanka on debut, marking him as the second Pakistani to achieve this feat. Triumph followed as he secured three centuries in Zimbabwe, an ODI history-making achievement.
Imam’s presence is distinct—a bespectacled, mild-mannered young man with a curious tone in his voice. At the crease, he transforms into a ruthless accumulator of runs. As a descendant of Pakistan’s legendary batsman, he commands a strong drive and off-the-hip play. Despite high-pressure situations, his belief in his abilities is unwavering. While untested in demanding conditions, a silver lining came when he was sidelined during Pakistan’s challenging ODI tour of New Zealand in 2018.
In the realm of Test cricket, his start may not have caught all eyes, but an unbeaten 74 in his debut match saved Pakistan from a potential defeat against Ireland. Challenges arose against the moving ball in English conditions, but his technique and composure indicate a bright future in red-ball cricket. The upcoming home tours against Australia and New Zealand offer him the ideal platform to etch his mark as a long-term opener in both formats.
