Aakash Chopra heaps praise on Imam-ul-Haq

ISLAMABAD: Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has lavished praise on Pakistan batter Imam-ul-Haq after the left-hander overtook India’s Virat Kohli on the second place in the latest ICC ODI rankings.

The 26-year-old had great back-to-back series against Australia and West Indies at home. He jumped to second spot with 815 points whereas Kohli slipped to third spot with 811 points.

“Imam has reached the number two spot [in ODI cricket]. He scored tons of runs during the recent tour by West Indies and also did well before that,” said Chopra on his YouTube channel.

“He is a very good player, there is no doubt about that,” he added.

The former Indian opener also added that Imam would stay ahead of Kohli in the ICC rankings in near future.

“There is only four-point gap between Imam and Kohli which isn’t much. But he will stay ahead of Kohli for a little while because Kohli isn’t going to play ODI cricket in the near future,” he said.

In 52 games, Imam has scored 2,520 runs in ODIs at an impressive of 54.78.
