The left-handed batsman who made it to the first team amidst of controversy surrounding nepotism has managed to seal his spot in the team after consistent performances. However, Imam-ul-Haq crossed the line after he was discovered to be having affairs on the side.

The opener was caught red-handed last week but the board was yet to release a statement surrounding the episode until now. The PCB are believed to let go of Imam-ul-Haq with a warning after the 23-year-old apologized for his antics. Here’s what PCB MD Wasim Khan had to say:

“Imam was remorseful and has apologized for what all has happened. But we have told him in clear terms although this is his personal and private matter but we expect our players to adhere to the highest standards of ethics and discipline,”

We don’t like to comment on personal affairs of a player but we expect that our centrally contracted players will also show more responsibility being ambassadors of Pakistan cricket and Pakistan. Hopefully we will not see such incidents again.”
