Pakistan opener Imam-Ul-Haq reportedly gave a cheeky response to an Indian journalist at a media briefing after their team’s practice session on Friday. This was after Imam was quizzed about his sleeping habits while making a reference to his uncle Inzamam-Ul-Haq. However, the southpaw countered the question with a quirky response.

“Your uncle Inzamam-ul-Haq used to sleep a lot, do you also like to sleep a lot like him?”, the Indian journalist was quoted by Express Tribune as saying.  Imam replied by saying, “How do you know that, have you slept with him?”

“All matches are same for me whether its Hong Kong or India as the pressure levels will be similar in all games. We are looking at every opponent and preparing for that game and not only worrying about playing against India,” the batsman said.

The left-hander also said that the Indian team are a quality ODI outfit, but the absence of skipper Virat Kohli will “make a difference”. “We just want to play aggressive cricket and results since the 2017 Champions Trophy are there for everyone to see.You have to really control your nerves in India-Pakistan games as things can easily go against you in such matches.”
