Imam-ul-Haq has been out of the form for this whole year. In the ongoing National T20 Cup, he also failed in the first two matches playing for KPK. In the third match, Imam-ul-Haq century was just missed by six runs and made a strong comeback to the form.
After his failure in the first two matches of the National T20 Cup 2020. Imam made a statement that KPK highly relies on his batting performance. But unfortunately, he is not doing well in recent times.
Right after this interview, in his third match for KPK. He played an outstanding inning of 94 runs of just 54 balls.
Not only his innings help the team to win the match. Also increases more misery in Southern Punjab who remains winless.
Usually, Imam ul Haq is considered more as an ODI player because of his batting pace. He likes to take time at the crease to get settle than starts to play his shots.
In his innings of 94, he batted with a strike rate of 174 with help of 10 fours and 4 sixes.
He isn’t known for this kind of batting but surely he has shut down his critics that he is a genuine talent.
Imam ul Haq century in T20 would be a great milestone for him as he get more mature in the shorter format.
This performance should help him to earn his place in the squad against Zimbabwe.
Imam has proved himself in the ODI format and also has an average of over 50. But he needs to work hard in Test and T20 cricket to become the best opener for Pakistan.
