Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq said he knew he would make his opportunity count when given the chance to play in the Test series against Australia.

The 26-year-old, who is the nephew of former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq, was in sparkling form in the three Tests as he accumulated 370 runs, which included two hundreds and a half-century, at an average of 74.

He didn’t stop there as he gave the Pakistan fans plenty more to cheer about in the three-match ODI series as he scored 298 runs, which included two centuries and a fifty, at an average of 149.

However, he didn’t play in the one-off T20 International, which the men in green lost by three wickets.

“I want to mention the camp we had in Karachi. It was very helpful. I played [my] last Test against Australia in Australia, then I got injured in New Zealand and was 12th Man for [the] last one-and-a-half years,” Imam was quoted as saying by Cricwick.

“I cannot explain how I’m feeling right now. It’s just a process. I was working hard for the last one-and-a-half years to get back into the Test side. I had belief that if I got an opportunity I would make it count.”

  1. I saw him only able to score on home soil, if have a guts to show performance in Australia, New Zealand and England and other countries but to play of batting friendly pitch and score only centuries it’s not the good enough, in first ODI against Aussie you got the chance to give the win to your country you fail because you do not have that kind of talent…Century on Batting batting friendly picht is not the big thing any new talent got chance they can hit ton.. If have ability show yourself on ANES conditions.
