Pakistan’s left-handed batter Imam ul Haq has returned to the homeland, pulling himself out of the last match of his club in the ongoing County Championship 2022. Imam was signed by Somerset for a four-match deal. However, he has been able to participate in three matches only.
The reason for ending the deal midway was not specified, but now, it has been heard that Imam has returned for personal reasons, involving the illness of his father. The reports state that his father suffered a cardiac arrest and has been urged for surgery by the doctors.
While stating the reason behind Imam’s sudden departure, the Somerset CCC Director Andy Hurry explained,
“Imam will return home immediately to be with his family in Pakistan. This means that he won’t be available for selection for our final fixture at Canterbury, starting on Monday.”
He also appreciated Imam’s tenure with the club and with valuable contributions.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Imam for all his contributions both on and off the field since joining the Club. On behalf of all the players, staff, and followers of Somerset County Cricket Club, we send our thoughts and support to Imam and his family at this time.”
The left-handed batter was signed as an overseas player in place of Matt Renshaw, who returned to Australia after his domestic cricket commitment to play the last four matches of the County Championship 2022.
Imam’s Somerset have played the last three matches against Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, and Gloucshire. In the six innings of the three matches, respectively, he has amassed 25 & 52, 5 & 0, and 90 & 5 runs, respectively.
