Birthday celebrations down under for Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq.

As Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq marked his 28th birthday on December 22, warm birthday wishes flooded in for the left-arm batter. Currently in Australia for a three-match Test series, Imam celebrated the occasion with teammates in Melbourne. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) shared a video on social media, capturing the joyous cake-cutting ceremony attended by former captain Babar Azam, pacer Mohammad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, and others.

In the first Test against Australia, Imam-ul-Haq showcased his batting prowess by scoring 72 runs across two innings. Despite the individual performance, the hosts emerged victorious with a commanding 360-run lead. The second Test of the series is scheduled to take place from December 26 to 30.
