Opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq is aiming to score a century in Pakistan’s World Cup opener against the West Indies on May 31.

Imam has been in excellent form as of late as he scored 234 runs in four ODIs against England, which included a career-best knock of 151, at an average of 117.

Since Imam will be making his World Cup debut, he is eager to make his presence felt in the showpiece event right away.

“My debut and the overall two-year journey in international cricket has been really good, our aim is always to give our best for Pakistan, so I am hopeful to start off our first World Cup match that is against the West Indies with a century,” the 23-year-old was quoted as saying by the Business Recorder.

Prior to starting their World Cup campaign, Pakistan will play two World Cup warm-up games against Afghanistan and Bangladesh in Bristol and Cardiff on May 24 and 26 respectively.
