Imad wasim announces retirement on social media

Imad shared the news on his social media, revealing that he had been thinking about this decision for the past few days. In a statement, he expressed, “Every one of my 121 times playing in ODIs and T20Is was like living a dream. I’m grateful for the exciting times in Pakistan cricket, especially with new coaches and leaders on the horizon.”

Imad kicked off his journey with the Pakistan team in a T20I back in May 2015, and just two months later, he made his debut in the One Day Internationals (ODIs). Throughout the years, he gained a reputation for being really good at not giving away too many runs when bowling, especially in shorter formats. Plus, he was a useful batsman coming in towards the end of the innings.

In 2017, Imad was part of the squad that clinched the Champions Trophy in England, and he even led the team in a couple of ODIs. However, for the past three years, he hasn’t played in any 50-over matches for Pakistan. He also wasn’t in the lineup during the T20 World Cup final in Australia last year, even though the team reached the final. Despite this, Imad has been busy playing in various cricket leagues around the world, and he plans to continue his cricket journey beyond the international arena.

Imad wasim-“Thank you to the Pakistan fans for always supporting me with such passion,” he said. “A final thank you to my family and friends who have been so important in helping me achieve at the highest level. I now look forward to focussing on the next stage of my playing career away from the international stage.”
