Imam Ul Haq is answering his selection at the moment. Pakistan is batting first in Kent against the home county and Imam has scored a fifty to his name on day one. A lot was thrown towards Imam and his uncle Inzamam who apparently is the head of the selection committee. Imam is proving everyone wrong. He scored brilliantly. He is not looking nervous and nor he was when he came out to bat under hazy conditions and the ball moving around. He looked focused and we are seeing the results from his bat as well. Imam is looking solid as at the moment Pakistan is on 114 runs for the loss of four wickets. Pakistan needs a solid partnership in order to make things go their way in the game.

And 28 runs for one became 28 for two whilst aslam (thirteen) changed into lbw to harry podmore. gidman also had haris sohail lbw for 5 in a miserly return of two for 16 in 8 overs. uncapped at check degree, imam – who made a century on his one-day international debut in opposition to sri lanka in october – cowl-drove two fashionable fours off seamer calum haggett. he then advanced down the pitch to pressure off-spinner adam riley for a boundary one among six fours in his 61 balls confronted.
