KARACHI: Pakistan’s left-handed opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq said that the criticism is part of a cricketer’s career.

While talking to a presser at UBL Sports Complex, Imam said that he always look forward to playing his natural game. Sometimes criticism helps me become stronger.

While answer to a query regarding Inzamam’s departure as a chief selector, Imam said “I have proved things with my performance and I will keep on doing so, I can’t stop people calling me whatever.”

To a query about his strike rate as he made century off 235 balls in match against Sindh in Quaid-e-Azam Trophy 2019, Imam blamed negative approach of opponents’ bowlers after the tea.

“Their [Opponents] bowlers started bowling negatively and also took a negative field which means that a single bad shot would have cost me my wicket. I tried to stick to the plan and play as long as I can,” Imam clarified.
