    If he can improve his shot range which will improve his strike rate, he is more than good enough for this average team. I really want to see in the next few games if he can improve his shot range and strike rotation.

    Ok, then please go ahead and find Sharmas, Buttlers, Starc, etc in Pakistan's domestic cricket.

    Selectors can pick a squad from the pool of players available in the country and this is the best set of available players. No amount of denial will change this fact.

    This is what some people don't comprehend. They will criticize but not give solutions. We saw how much Sahibzada Farhan was hyped on this forum and he was clueless in International cricket.Even Fakhar who has been pathetic lately escapes criticism because he plays phaaast but scores in single digits.
    Some posters have made it a business to criticize inzi and imam for everything.Just take a look at this team and think. We already saw how our alternative team was humiliated by Australia.

    I find the hysteria around Imam bizzare. Pakistani fans are jumping on him like he's committed some crime.

    I accept that he has a lot still to prove, but for heaven's sake give the guy a chance. He has had a decent start to his career and yes we know his strike rate needs to improve. Hopefully it will. But on what basis Pakistani fans think it's justifiable to direct all their anger towards Imam is not clear to me.

    Even this statement Imam gave to the media before the Engalnd tour started - he was clearly angry at the accusations of nepotism which are unfair. He's in the team because he's performed, and so to pretend he's Faisal Iqbal type is just delusional. Despite knowing that the statement was made in anger against a backdrop of nepotism claims, Pakistani fans here still think it's appropriate to label Imam as arrogant.

    A more experienced campaigner would not let all this negativity get to his head, but its clear from that interview that the nepotism claims are a cause of real upset to Imam. He needs to channel that anger and frustration into performing for Pakistan, so that all his critics shut up.

    Looking at how Fakhar has been batting, having Imam at the other end is not a bad idea. You don't want two dashers and finding yourselves at 10/2 with Babar coming in by 2 or 3rd over.

    If Imam is to not be dropped then it would be a smart move to bring Babar to open and utilize the powerplay, Imam can shift down to 3 whent he field opens up so he doesn't get tied down as much as he does during the opening powerplay.

    Possibly he's getting more hate normal due to nepotism but his performances are generally ordinary having a strike rate of 70 and an average under 40 minus minnows is bound to get criticism.
    Slow starts cannot be made up by the middle and lower order to post winning totals as there aren't Kohlis and Vivs in the team it's imperative the run rate improves in the first 10-15 overs.

    Chasing 373...... after 7 overs, if you need 7.69 RPO to win, this open should not eve be allowed to play club cricket.... let alone World Cup.....

    One boundary in first 7 overs....

    Not only that with a S/R of 63, you are putting pressure on Fakhar Zaman to score faster.....

    Pathetic!!!

    Matched his average against the top 5 teams improved his strike rate almost 80 but then it's a flat pitch nothing extraordinary.

    Will Imam ul Haq EVER play an innings of note?

    Every single time we see him moving along at a gentle strike rate ensuring that Pakistan dont cross the line. It seems to me that the best he can do so far is to ensure respectability to the total. Thats certainly not enough at all on that especially on these flat tracks. Does he even have it in him to play an innings of note?

    Imam ul Haq batting at a strike rate of 79.58 which means he is going at 4.77 runs per over. In a run chase that required you got over 7.46.

    And people say Imam isnt the issue?

    It was a pathetic knock in the circumstances. And is the only reason run rate is above 8 now

    Maybe once he develops some shots.

    And is not charging down the pitch against the fast bowlers to try and score.

    This may take some time and he might learn. With his average, he has bought some time now, and he's going nowhere anyway at least until end of the World Cup.

    So, might just pray that he pull something off.


    But... from what I have seen in the PSL, T20I and till now in ODIs, he will continue to struggle in any high profile match, or any high scoring match for that matter.


    I think he tries to score, but he just can't because of lack of shots. Charging down the pitch against the pacers just will not work.


    He will be useful in dead rubbers though, or when a high score isn't required.

    Striking at 79, but the first thing he will do after the match his check up on his average to make sure it still intact. Kind of cringy how he checks up on his average, shows how his personal achievements are more important than the team. I supported Imam at first but now I am starting to dislike the guy.

    Of course there would've been a collapse only which Imam stopped by batting slowly on a flat pancake and costing his team yet again the extra runs needed to win.

    Imam calling himself automatic selection I thought its some sort of a joke before seeing the clip. Guy is not only crap as a cricketer but is arrogant and shameless as well.

    IF his uncle Inzi was not chief selector he would not even be allowed in the Pakistan team nets.

    Inzamam has left Shakeel Sheikh behind,shame on PCB and Imran Khan for continuing with Inzamam. He should be kept away from every post of PCB.

    Even though Imam might not have the best skills or most talented batsman. I think what people call "arrogance" in his personality is what we need currently. He is not brainless like our other cricketers. Always willing to give a fight.

    I think as a nation we love mediocrity and like typical "Thanks to management" attitude. He is best option to go alongside Fakhar no matter how much people chant parc**

    I hope that section of our fans have the ability to accept that they subject Imam to a ridiculous amount of criticism for a guy with that level of performance

    His best... impressive 150 not out.

    I am glad we have people in the lineup who can get big 100s.

    Fakhar, Imam, hopefully Babar too. We need to score big runs in this world cup judging by how the pitches are behaving.

    Watch England chase this score down in 40 overs. Great individual innings let's see if it can lead to Pak victory, only then can it be properly judged.

    Sarfaraz is to be blamed if we lose for batting at a strike-rate of 79. Cut your Imam hate.

    I thought he would get out when the slog was on, would have been nice to see him stick around a bit longer as the last specialist batsman, but it's not his game to be fair, so he has proven he can provide a solid base as an opener.


    I for one welcome our new In____ overlords - Kent Brockman

    Cut your Sarfraz hate, he played well and formed a good partnership with Imam when Harris gave away his wicket. He miscued trying to up the run rate.

    Good knock today, at an unusual strike rate for him.

    He can score runs, just needs to score them faster.

    I’ve always criticised him not because of any personal vendetta or nepotistic vendetta against him but simply because I disapproved of his over cautious approach. Today he was sublime. No denying it!

    Sarfraz fans call other players selfish when they don't bat at the required rate but when their hero doesn't bat at the required rate he is defended to the hill.

    Look at these imam haters trying to undermine his performance. Smh.
    He played a wonderful innings. I'm pretty sure that even if we had a total of 380, eng would have chased it down. So don't criticise Imam for it.

    It sure would help if Babar could stop making pretty 15s... then again, he doesn't seem to possess the same elite mentality as Imam. In fact, very few Pakistani batsmen possess such hunger and consistency considering our poor history with regard to scoring ODI hundreds.

    Leading run scorer in the Asia Cup, leading run scorer in South Africa and now leading run scorer in England, but somehow, he is not an automatic selection for the World Cup.

    Pakistani fans are in a league of their own.

    Exactly. Babar is a homeless man's Hashim Amla but he escapes criticism because he's "talented."

    If some of our hypocritical fans applied the same astronomical standards to Babar as they do to Imam, he would be getting crucified for his performance up till now in this series. However, their darling can do no wrong.

    Some of our fans deserve the humiliation. @Mamoon is right. He is showing signs of improving yet you all keep going on about how he is being selected. Babar Azam doesn't seem to have the same desire as Imam.
