Imad Wasim, the Pakistani all-rounder, has announced his immediate retirement from international cricket via social media. During his career, he featured in 55 ODIs and 66 T20Is for Pakistan, contributing as a left-arm spinner and a batsman in the lower order. His last appearance for Pakistan was in April during a T20I against New Zealand.
“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,” Imad wrote on X. “I would like to thank the PCB for all their support over the years – it has truly been an honour to represent Pakistan.
“Each of my 121 appearances across the ODI and T20I formats was a dream come true. It’s an exciting time for Pakistan cricket going forwards with new coaches and leadership incoming. I wish all involved every success and I look forward to watching the team excel.
“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.”
