Imam-ul-Haq, the nephew of former Pakistan captain and chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq is all set to make his Test debut against Ireland.
The 22-year old has played four ODIs for his national side, and now he would be making his Test debut for Pakistan on May 11.
He has recalled the memories of 2007 World Cup when Pakistan was beaten by Ireland and India was defeated by Bangladesh.
Recalling the moment he said, “It was a big day for Ireland, but it was a sad day for Pakistan. We were sad that Pakistan but we got happy when India was beaten by Bangladesh.”
While Pakistan failed to deliver in the first opening game, they showed some impressive form to brush aside Northamptonshire by nine wickets on Monday.
