Being Inzamam-ul-nephew Haq’s placed a lot of pressure on Imam from the outset. The young Pakistani batsman, however, shrugged off the pressure and played admirably in his debut series against India’s U19 side. Imam-ul-Haq, who is known for his flamboyant batting style, has established himself as one of Pakistan’s top ODI batsmen and has won a spot in the national team.
In ODIs, the highest opening partnership has been reached.
In one-day internationals, he is the second-fastest batsman to cross 1000 runs.
Imam began his career with Lahore Shalimar in 2012/13. He was instrumental in his side, the Lahore Blues, winning the 2017-18 National T20 Cup final. He began playing for Balochistan and Peshawar Zalmi in various domestic competitions in 2019.
In 2017, he made his One-Day International debut against Sri Lanka. He became the second Pakistani batsman to score a century on his debut. He made his Test debut against Ireland in the summer of the following year. Two months later, he and Fakhar Zaman established the highest opening partnership in One-Day Internationals. They put up a best of 304 runs as a team. Pakistan’s innings finished with a total of 399 runs, their highest ODI total. The pair also set a record for the most runs scored by a pair in a bilateral series with 705 runs.
Imam-ul-Haq became the second-fastest batsman to score 1000 runs in one-day internationals in early 2019. In just 19 innings, he surpassed the 1000-run mark. He played his first T20I match. He was called to the national team for the 2019 ICC World Cup soon after that.
Insaram-ul-Haq and Farah Insaram have a son named Imam-ul-Haq. He is the nephew of Inzamam-ul-Haq, the legendary Pakistani batsman.
