Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq is under fire for his silence with the bat. He has failed in both the Tests for Pakistan on Australia tour. Imam has scored a 2 and 0 in the ongoing day-night Test at Adelaide Oval.
Imam, the nephew of Inzamam Ul Haq, became the target of the trolls on social media for back-to-back failure on foreign soil. Not only the fans, but even Iceland Cricket took a harsh jibe at him for the poor batting display. Coming up with a tweet that Imam may find heart-piercing, Iceland wrote, "David Warner has scored more runs in his last two innings than Imam-ul-Haq has scored in his entire test career. #AUSvPAK."
Unfortunately for Imam, the words from Iceland Cricket were absolutely true. The Pakistan opener has 485 runs to his name in his brief Test career, comprising 21 innings in 11 Test matches. On the other side, Warner has got a total of 489 runs in this series. He scored 154 in the first match and a 335* in the second Test.
Pakistan is currently in a very tough situation to come out. They managed to come close to the follow-on target in the first innings, thanks to a hundred by Yasir Shah and Babar Azam's 97. But the top order again disappointed in the second innings. They lost 39/3 in the second innings. In the first innings, Pakistan scored 302, in reply to Australia's 589/3d.
