Former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed praised Imam-ul-Haq for his magnificent knock of 157 in the first Test against Australia, which was the opening batsman’s maiden Test hundred.
Sarfaraz said it was the best century out of all he had seen Imam score and backed the 26-year-old to score many more in the future.
After hitting 157 in the first innings of the first Test, Imam followed it up with 111 not out in the second innings.
Overall, he amassed 370 runs in the three-Test series at an average of 74.
“I saw all of your 7 ODI 100s, but this maiden Test hundred is the best of the lot,” Sarfaraz said on Twitter.
Imam didn’t stop there as he hammered 298 runs in the three-match ODI series, which included two centuries and an unbeaten 89, at an average of 149.
