Imam, who is a regular feature in Pakistan’s ODI and Test side, is yet to make an international T20 debut. However, his latest addition in the may prove to be a launch paid for the young opener to make his point.
Imam, who remained unpicked in the original draft in November last year, will join Zalmi as their 21st squad player today.
This will also be his debut in the lucrative league as the 23-year-old opener has never featured in PSL before.
So far, the young opening batsman has scored 853 runs in the 29 T20 matches in his career with an average of 40.61, with his highest score being 67.
