Imam-ul-Haq ended his Australia tour on a terrible note, getting out for a duck in the second innings of the ongoing second Test at the Adelaide Oval. The game was a chance for the Pakistan opener to show the tea-management that they were wrong to keep him out of the playing eleven for the most part of the tour.
Prior to the ongoing game, he made it to the playing eleven just once during the Perth T20Is. In all the other games, he just warmed the bench and did little to show that the team-management was wrong in dropping him. Having scored only 14 in the solitary T20I he played in Australia, the left-handed batsman scored just 2 and 0 in the ongoing game as Pakistan look set to suffer yet another innings defeat.
And as if those twin failures were not enough, Imam-ul-Haq was also mercilessly trolled by Iceland Cricket. Iceland Cricket took note of the fact that Australia’s opener David Warner has amassed 489 runs in his last two Test innings which is four more than what Imam has managed in his “entire Test career”.
Warner scored 154 in the first Test at the Gabba before playing the monumental knock of 335 not out in the ongoing game. On the other hand, the Pakistan opener has 485 runs to his name in his brief Test career, comprising 21 innings in 11 Test matches.
“David Warner has scored more runs in his last two innings than Imam-ul-Haq has scored in his entire test career. #AUSvPAK,” wrote Iceland Cricket on Twitter.

Australia on their way to victory:
Australia, meanwhile, need seven more wickets to win the game by an innings. After scoring 302 in reply to Australia’s first innings total of 589 for 3 (declared), Pakistan were asked to follow in. The visitors finished day three on 39 for 3, still needing 248 runs to make the home side bat again.
