Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja believes that Imam-ul-Haq should bat at number three for Pakistan during the Test series against England.

Ramiz feels that having three opening batsmen in the playing XI will benefit Pakistan.

He added that the national team’s “battle against England will be with the new ball”, and if Pakistan can “succeed in controlling the fast bowling then they can win the contest”.
