Pakistan national cricket team opener Imam-ul-Haq has been under the media scanner for all the wrong reasons recently. The nephew of Inzamam ul Haq, he was involved in an online scandal with multiple women who have accused him of misleading them. Although he has apologised, the country's cricket board feels that he should show more responsibility as he represents his nation.

"Imam was remorseful and has apologised 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," PCB MD Wasim Khan said on Monday.
