Pakistan southpaw opener Imam Ul-Haq took a sly dig at an Indian Journalist. When an Indian journalist asked Imam Ul-Haq about his sleeping habit, the left-hander gave a perfect reply. Journalist asked whether Imam likes to sleep a lot like his uncle Inzamam-ul-Haq.

Meanwhile, Inzamam ul-Haq was well known for his elegant strokeplay. However, the former Pakistan captain was not a live-wire on the field because of his weight. In fact, Inzamam worked hard on his fitness and improved his agility massively.

Imam-Ul-Haq is in fine form.

However, there was always a chance of a run-out when Inzamam Ul-Haw used to bat. Nevertheless, there is no denying the fact that Inzamam was one of the best Pakistan batsmen. In fact, there were some question marks raised when Imam Ul-Haq had received the national call-up.

On the other hand, Imam Ul-Haq has had a fine start to his International career. Imam has scored four hundred in just nine One-Dayers he has played. Thus, the Pakistan southpaw opener averages 68 in his short career. The left-hander has also played three T20 Internationals in which he has scored one half-century.

Therefore, the southpaw batsman will like to continue with his good form with the bat. Imam and Fakhar Zaman have provided some great starts in the recent past for Pakistan. Thus, the opening pair will like to provide a good platform to the Pakistan side.

A Pakistan journalist took to his Twitter account to share Imam’s response. The post read as, “An Indian journalist to Imam ul Haq “Your uncle (Inzamam ul Haq) used to sleep a lot, do you also like to sleep like him,”
– “have you slept with him?” replied Imam.”
