I would like to play for Pakistan in all three formats: Imam-ul-Haq


Lahore: Opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq has revealed his desire to represent Pakistan in all three formats for Pakistan consistently.

The left-handed batsman is also aiming to score more runs in Test cricket for Pakistan. “Just like every other cricketer, I would like to play for Pakistan in all three formats and for this, I’m working hard,” he said in a video conference.

“I have played 11 Test matches in my career until now and I have learned a lot from it,” he added.

Imam also talked about the controversy that revolves around the players but according to him, it is not in the hands of the players. “Controversies on social media are beyond my control but in every cricketer’s life there are controversies,” he maintained.

The 24-year-old thinks in order to regain the match fitness, 12-15 days will be required if the cricket comes back to normality.

He also hailed Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) decision of conducting online fitness tests as it is important to stay fit in these situations.

“Fitness test was perfect and it was great for the players to stay fit according to the demand of international cricket. It was slightly different from the conventional fitness test but personally I enjoyed it,” he added.
