‘Seen my uncle play in Multan, now it’s my time to perform’ Imam-ul-Haq

MULTAN: Pakistan left-handed opener Imam-ul-Haq revealed his connection with the city and stated that he saw his uncle – former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq play here and is now confident to follow in the latter’s footsteps.

Imam, who was born here before moving to Lahore, claimed he has many memories tied up with his city of birth.

“I grew up watching my uncle playing here at Multan Cricket Stadium. Now, it is my turn to come out here and perform,” Imam stated.

“On our way to the ground for practice, I was sharing those memories with Babar. I was born in Multan so I have a lot of memories here,” Imam maintained.

Imam, who is set to represent Pakistan for the 50th time in ODI cricket, stated that it has been a remarkable journey which also had some highs and some lows, emphasizing these contrasting times help an individual learn.

“The 50th ODI is a milestone for me. In my view cricket teaches a lot of things. There were some highs and some lows, the criticism was also there but I enjoyed that a lot,” Imam shared.

“My teammates have also done their part in making my journey a delightful one. I wish it keeps going the same way and I think an individual learns from the lows and highs of his life. I strive to become a better individual and also a cricketer,” he concluded.

It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan will take on the West Indies in a three-match home ODI series. The matches will take place on June 8, 10, and 12 respectively.
