Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq has enjoyed a successful start to his international career, especially when it comes to ODIs, where he has scored four centuries in nine matches.
Imam is also known for being the nephew of former Pakistan skipper and current chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq.
Imam’s inclusion in the national team has been criticised by some as they believe it was solely the result of his uncle rather than his talent.
However, he has already repaid the faith invested in him, and will be aiming to continue doing so in the upcoming Asia Cup, where Pakistan start their campaign against Hong Kong in Dubai on September 16.
Talking about his uncle can become a bit of an annoyance for Imam as many journalists go down that route when speaking to him.
One Indian journalist who was trying to delve slightly too deep into his uncle’s habits triggered a hilarious response from Imam.
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.

“Your uncle (Inzamam ul Haq) used to sleep a lot, do you also like to sleep like him?” the journalist asked.
In response, the 22-year-old said: “Have you slept with him?”
It’s safe to say that journalist will be much more cautious in the future after that epic response from Imam!
