Pakistan opener Iman-Ul-Haq feels that he might not be accepted by Pakistan fans for what he is as opposed to him being the nephew of former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-Ul-Haq. Imam said that he had made it to the Pakistan team through hard work. "I don’t think it will change unfortunately. The people will never accept me. That's what I think. I will be very pleased if people were to accept me as Imam-Ul-Haq and not as someone's nephew."

Imam has represented Pakistan in 10 Tests, 36 ODIs and 1 T20I scoring over 2000 runs across formats. He made his debut in an ODI in 2017. In the 36 ODIs he has played, he has amassed 1692 runs at an average of 54.58 including 6 fifties and 7 hundreds. On the other hand, in Tests he has scored 1017 runs at an average of 28.41. He is yet to score a hundred in the longest format of the game.

"People think he (Inzamam-Ul-Haq) instructed Mickey Arthur to select me. People need to realize that we are living in a time where you can't hide anything from the media. I won't be in the team without my performance."

"They don't see that I've gone through the process. They only see that I'm nephew of Inzamam and they believe that they have the right to criticize me. I cry a lot when Pakistan lose. It hurts me if people criticize Babar Azam or Mohammad Amir. I know what we all go through to give our best for the team."

Currently, Pakistan are hosting Sri Lanka for 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is.
