‘Don’t know the reason behind being dropped’ Imad seeks justification

KARACHI: Pakistan all-rounder, Imad Wasim, who has not been a part of the national side following the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, has sought justification for his exclusion.

Speaking to Cricket Pakistan, the all-rounder claimed that he is clueless about his exclusion from the national team as no justification has been provided to him.

“I have not played a single match since the World Cup. I don’t know the reason behind this, to be honest,” Imad told Cricket Pakistan.

“No justification has been provided to me, and reasons are given to me, but I am unsatisfied with them. But whatever happens, happens because it is Almighty’s will,” he maintained.

Imad then went on to reveal the reasons given to him for his exclusion from the team, while at the same rubbished them.

“After the contracts and the teams are announced, I have to contact on my own to find out the reasons. Sometimes they respond, sometimes they don’t,” Imad revealed.

“One reason given to me was regarding the positive influence on the team. I don’t think I have a negative influence. I play leagues all around the world, and whenever I play for one team, they approach me again, which shows that I don’t have a negative influence. This nullifies their first reason for not selecting me,” he added.

It is pertinent to mention here that Imad represented Pakistan in 113 matches since making his debut for the Green Shirts in 2015. The all-rounder, however, last donned the Pakistani jersey in the semi-final clash against Australia.
