The famous toe-crusher and the former head coach of Pakistan Cricket team, Waqar Younis, praises Imam-ul-Haq, as he helped Pakistan chase a target successfully against the Proteas at Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

In his tweet later that night, Waqar also gave a shut-up call to the people criticizing Imam’s selection as not being on merit. Remember, there have been many allegations on the chief-selector on being biased with the selection of Imam in the national team. Imam has also been under the pump various times, but truly he has proved his selection right.

Imam averages above 60 after the 17 ODIs he has played. This is simply remarkable. He is also eligible to become the quickest batsman to reach 1000 ODI runs, needs 95 runs in the next game to level Fakhar Zaman’s record.
