Pakistan All-Rounder Quits International Cricket


Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim announced his retirement from international cricket on Friday (November 24). The 34-year-old took to his social media to announce his decision to bid adiue to all formats of the game at the highest level.

“In recent days I have been doing a lot of thinking about my international career and I have come to the conclusion that now is the right time for me to announce my retirement from international cricket. I would like to thank the PCB for all their support over the years – it has truly been an honour to represent Pakistan,” Wasim wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

“Thank you to the Pakistan fans for always supporting me with such passion. 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,” he added.

Wasim represented Pakistan in 55 ODIs and 66 T20Is scoring 986 runs and 486 runs respectively while also scalping 44 and 65 wickets in the two formats. In his overall list A career, Wasim played 124 matchs while accumulating 2659 runs and picking up 130 wickets. Wasim also holds a vast T20 experience and has featured in 318 of them including the ones he has played in franchise cricket, making 3531 runs and picking up 290 wickets with best figures of 5/14.

The left-handed batter and spin bowler last donned Pakistan jersey in a T20I which came against New Zealand in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. The 34-year-old was most famously part of the Pakistan team that beat India in the final of the 2017 Champions Trophy to clinch the trophy. The Men in Green played a pivotal role in the team’s World Cup campaign in England in 2019.

“Imad Wasim has been a valuable asset to Pakistan cricket. His performances, especially in white-ball cricket, have been crucial to the team’s success. While we respect his decision to retire, we will miss his presence on the field,” Chairman PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) Management Committee Zaka Ashraf said in an official release.
