Former Pakistani fast bowler, Wasim Akram, has indirectly criticized all-rounder Imad Wasim, questioning the commitment of players who express a desire to represent the national team without actively participating in domestic cricket.
In a recent interview with a local media channel, Akram expressed concerns about players prioritizing commitments such as T10 cricket over important domestic tournaments like the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy and the ongoing Pakistan Cup.
Akram stated, “While players actively engaged with the Pakistan team are fine, what about others? Some of them are appearing on television, yet they aspire to play for Pakistan. How is that possible?”
In response to a fan’s question about his absence from domestic cricket, Imad Wasim explained during a recent interview that he has other commitments, including participating in T10 cricket, which prevent him from being available for tournaments like the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy or the ongoing Pakistan Cup.
It’s important to note that Imad Wasim’s last appearance in the One Day International squad was against Zimbabwe in Rawalpindi in 2020. In his ODI career, he has played 55 matches, scoring 986 runs and taking 44 wickets.
