Young opener Imam-ul-Haq has managed to impress in his short international career and is touted to be the next big thing in Pakistan cricket. Being the nephew of former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, Imam stepped into international cricket with insurmountable pressure. However, he hasn’t allowed his critics to do much talking. In just 43 ODIs, the 25-year-old has smashed seven centuries and would like to add many more big scores to his cabinet.
However, apart from his batting abilities, it seems like the southpaw also has a sense of humour. On the occasion of Eid, Haq shared a hilarious meme that showcased the pain of single people compared to couples on the festival. Taking to his Instagram story, the left-handed batsman posted a meme featuring several Pakistan cricket stars, some single, some with their partners.
As per the post, Haq and his teammates Shadab Khan and Babar Azam were getting jealous of seeing other Pakistan cricketers enjoying the festival with their partners. Haq morphed his, Shadab, and Babar’s pictures into a popular Hindi web series ‘Mirzapur’ character ‘Guddu Bhaiya’, while using one of his famous dialogues. Unsurprisingly, the young batsman’s antics didn’t take long in getting viral.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Cricket Team has been on a roll lately, having defeated South Africa and Zimbabwe in their respective homes. While they beat the Proteas side in ODI and T20I series last month, they backed it up with a T20I, and a Test series win over Zimbabwe. Imam-ul-Haq featured in the ODIs against the Proteas, scoring 132 runs in three games at an average of 44 to help his side clinch the series 2-1.

However, the southpaw didn’t get chances in the other two formats. Nevertheless, Pakistan captain Babar Azam had said that Imam has done well in First-Class cricket and could be back in contention for selection as an opener in Tests. However, Babar also admitted that the 25-year-old can’t be added to the Test squad just because he’s a left-handed batsman. So far, Haq has gotten opportunities in 11 Test matches where he scored 485 runs at an average of 25.52.
