“Wish you a very happy birthday Chachu Inzamam-ul-Haq. Blessed to have you as role model and who served Pakistan cricket at the highest level. May Allah keep you happy and healthy,” Imam said on Twitter.
Imam recently played in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he scored 89 runs in four games for the Peshawar Zalmi at an average of 22.25 and a strike-rate of 121.91.
PSL 6 was postponed last Thursday due to the coronavirus (COVID-19), but the remaining matches could be held in Karachi in June.
