Iceland Cricket troll Imam-ul-Haq: The Pakistani opening batsman failed to get among the runs in the ongoing Test in Adelaide.

During the third day of the second Test of the ongoing Pakistan’s tour of Australia in Adelaide, Pakistan opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq failed to get among the runs for the second time in the match.

Opening the batting with Shan Masood, Imam returned back to the pavilion without any contribution in the fourth over. The southpaw was dismissed after Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood found him wanting in front of the stumps.

It is worth mentioning that Imam was included in the playing XI as a replacement for batsman Haris Sohail. Having missed the first Test at the Gabba, Imam was expected to battle harder against the Australian bowlers. However, scores of 2 and 0 don’t justify his selection for this Test.

Imam is part of other Pakistani batsmen who have failed to deliver in the Test series. With the visitors on the verge of losing the second Test, it predominantly comes down to their batsmen’s inability to adjust in the foreign conditions.

The official Twitter handle of Iceland Cricket ended up trolling Imam in one of their tweets regarding the match. Iceland Cricket compared Imam’s runs in his Test career with Warner’s runs in his last two innings.

In the 11 Tests that he has played, Imam has scored 485 runs at an average of 25.52 and a strike rate of 46.54 including three half-centuries. Having scored his maiden triple century in this match, Warner has amassed 489 runs in his last two innings.
