Islamabad United’s new recruit Imad Wasim seems ready to set the stage on fire after he was traded with Karachi Kings in place of fast bowler Hasan Ali for the upcoming season of Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Imad has conveyed to the supporters of United that the eight retentions done by the franchise indicate balance in the squad, with equal qualities in the batting and bowling attack.
The left-arm all-rounder felt intrigued by the Islamabad franchise approach to shuffling the batting order during 1st and 2nd innings chases. Wasim conveyed that leaving Karachi Kings, having spent 8 seasons there, wasn’t an easy decision, but it feels like a homecoming when he was contacted by United because Islamabad is his hometown.
