Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja has praised outgoing chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq for including a number of talented youngsters in the national team, including opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq.

Ramiz’s comments come after Inzamam announced that he would be stepping down as chief selector at the end of the month.

In addition to Imam, Ramiz noted that Inzamam enabled batsman Babar Azam, left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi and spin-bowling all-rounder Imad Wasim to get into the Pakistan team and make their presence felt.

However, Inzamam has been constantly been criticised for letting Imam play international cricket since the 23-year-old is his nephew.

But, Ramiz feels it was the right call on Inzamam’s behalf, and added that Imam has proved his worth, especially in ODIs, where he has scored 1,692 runs, which includes seven centuries and six half-centuries, at an average of 54.58.

He also feels that Inzamam didn’t show any favouritism to Imam.

“After [the] inclusion of his nephew Imam into the squad, Inzamam had to go through controversy,” Ramiz was quoted as saying by The News International.
