Islamabad United’s all-rounder Imad Wasim has commented on the possibility of him coming out of retirement in international cricket.

Wasim, who stunned the cricket fans in November last year with a shocking retirement from international cricket, has kept the door open for his comeback to international cricket.

“I made a name for myself while playing for Pakistan and if my country needs me, I will be available. If not, I have no issues with that,” Wasim told local media.

“Shaheen [Afridi] called me after I retired but I told him that we will talk after PSL,” he added.

Wasim, who made his international debut in 2015, represented Pakistan in 66 T20Is and 55 ODIs before his retirement.

He scored 1,472 runs across formats with the help of six half-centuries and was also part of the Pakistan side that won the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017.

Imad Wasim led Islamabad United to a thumping 39-run victory over Quetta Gladiators in Eliminator 1 of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 9 yesterday.

The victory marked the end of Quetta Gladiators’ PSL 9 campaign while Islamabad United progressed to Eliminator 2 where they will lock horns with Peshawar Zalmi.

The left-arm spinner claimed brilliant bowling figures of 3-19 to bowl the Gladiators for 139 while chasing 175.

“I think what we saw in the last few games, it was spinning, holding a bit, the thing I did well was to bowl really slow, it was gripping and it went well,” Imad said at the post-match ceremony.

“I tried to bowl more slow balls than arm balls and mixed it up…worked for me…we restricted them and took wickets which is the best thing, if you do one of these right, you will win because powerplay is very important,” he added.
