Srinagar, April 22: Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq Wednesday remarked that cricket will lose its charm without fans making it to the grounds.

There are deliberations that even if cricket resumes amid the coronavirus pandemic, it will be played behind closed doors. Imam although is not in favour of it, he would support Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

“The charm is lost without the crowd and it feels odd playing without them but if that is what the PCB wants then we have to support that,” he said in an online video conference.

The southpaw, however, opined T20 World Cup should not be held without spectators.

“It’s the ICC’s decision as well as the boards’ but I do think that crowds should be allowed,” he said.

Speaking of the online fitness test, Imam said gym at home helped him go through it.

“The fitness tests went exactly like our previous tests. Luckily, I had a gym set up at my home just before the lockdown so I’ve been keeping myself fit and taking help from the trainer,” Imam said.
