Fans get furious as Imam ul Haq is seen cracking jokes with Australian Coach after an embarrassing performance
Imam ul Haq’s selection has always raised questions with most of the fans accusing him of being unfairly picked in the team. Despite dismal performances in his previous test outings, Imam ul Haq was named in the Test squad against the Aussies.
The left-handed batsman once again failed to put runs on the board during the second test match against Australia. He was dismissed for 2 and 0 in the first and second innings, respectively.
The 23-years-old was on the receiving end of heavy criticism after a picture of him sharing a joke with the Australian coach went viral on the internet. Imam ul Haq was instantly called out by a former cricketer, sports journalists and fans for his non-serious attitude despite an embarrassing performance.
Former cricketer, Faisal Iqbal, termed the picture as shameful.

Saj Sadiq also bashed Imam ul haq.
Just scored 2 runs in a Test match.
Just been beaten by an innings in both Test matches.
Just lost 14th Test match in a row in Australia.

Instead of just two runs in the Adelaide Test against Pakistan's defeat, Imam ul Haq is joking with Australian coach Justin Langer instead. Does anyone have the misery of Pakistan's disastrous defeat in this series ?? #AUSvsPAK pic.twitter.com/QX9k3iTbnt
