Imam-ul-Haq 100 v BangladeshBack to boards

Imam-ul-Haq reached the Lord’s Limited-Overs Honours Boards when he hit 100 during Pakistan’s 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup match against Bangladesh.

Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat, with a unrealistic aim of trying to hit at least 400 in their innings to try and qualify for the semi-finals.

Imam-Ul-Haq showed maturity beyond his years in laying a foundation for Pakistan to try and reach that unlikely target, hitting his century off 100 balls, in an innings that included eight fours.

As well as his hundred being his maiden in ODI cricket, the knock meant he was the youngest Pakistani to ever make a World Cup ton.

Imam-ul-Haq joined his uncle Inzamam-ul-Haq on the Honours Boards, making them the first Uncle-Nephew combination recognised there in Lord's history.

Unfortunately for Pakistan, a mini collapse could not see Safaraz Ahmed’s side reach their desired target as they missed out on a spot in the final four of the World Cup.
