The young cricketer from Pakistan, Imam-ul Haq has cleared that he wants to create his own identity first and then Inzamam-ul-Haq’s nephew.
Meanwhile, Imam is currently in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) preparing for the Asia Cup 2018. Pakistan will play their first game against Hong Kong on September 17. Next up, they will clash with arch-rivals India for the first time since last year’s Champions Trophy.
Speaking to media, Imam-ul-Haq admitted that he wants to create an identity for himself. He also added it is not his fault that former cricketer Inzamam is his uncle.
“I want to be recognised and accepted as Imam-ul-Haq first and then Inzamam’s nephew after that, and yes he is my uncle and it’s not my fault,” Imam said.
The 22-year-old credited all his success in his short international career to his parents. He also admitted that opinions created by media hadn’t affected him ever.
“I have scored 4 hundred in 9 ODIs and credit goes to my family for their support, to the management as they have also supported me. so what the media says has never mattered to me,” Imam added.
Every match is the same for me: Imam-ul Haq
Commenting on the crucial and highly anticipated game against India, the young batsman said that it is equal like other matches and holds no unique position.
“All matches are same for me whether its Hong Kong or India; my pressure levels will be the same in all games. We are looking at each match and opponent and preparing for that game and not only worrying about India,” Imam-ul-Haq concluded.
Meanwhile, India and Pakistan will square off against each other on September 19 in the Asia Cup 2018.
