“I Never Allow Parents at the Stadium Because of ‘Parchi’ Chants Fear,” says Imam-ul-Haq.

Pakistan’s opening batsman, Imam-ul-Haq, finds himself disheartened by the persistent labeling of ‘parchi’ (a term implying favoritism due to connections) by fans, despite consistently delivering strong performances on the field. He has candidly expressed his reluctance to bring his parents to stadiums, fearing they might be subjected to hurtful remarks.

This scrutiny has shadowed him ever since he embarked on his One Day Internationals (ODIs) career in 2017, primarily because his uncle, Inzamam-ul-Haq, held the position of chief selector. This association led to widespread allegations of preferential treatment, even though his performance in ODIs consistently shines. Regrettably, people tend to overlook his exceptional contributions on days when things don’t go as planned.

Imam-ul-Haq is gearing up for significant cricket events, including the Pakistan-Afghanistan ODI series, the Asia Cup 2023, and the ICC World Cup 2023, where he will continue to serve as an opener, aspiring to reaffirm his prowess and silence the skeptics.
