Srinagar: As expected Imad Wasim has taken back his retirement from International cricket and has made himself available for the Pakistan cricket team ahead of T20 World Cup 2024.

Imad announced his decision in a statement on his official X on Saturday.

“I am happy to announce that pursuant to meeting PCB officials, I have reconsidered my retirement and am delighted to declare my availability for Pakistan cricket in T20I format leading up to ICC T20I World Cup 2024,” Imad said.

“I would like to thank the PCB for reposing trust in me and I would give my very best to bring laurels to my country. Pakistan comes first!,” he added.

Imad performed well during the recently-concluded Pakistan Super League (PSL) season nine, leading his side, Islamabad United, to the title.

Imad, for bagging five-wicket haul in the final of PSL 9 against Multan Sultans, was adjudged player of the match as Islamabad United lifted their first PSL trophy since 2018 and third overall.

Imad also became the first player in PSL history to win Player-of-the-Match awards in all three playoff games.

Imad has been a crucial member of the Pakistan team over the years and was a member of the 2017 Champions Trophy-winning squad. He also played in the 2016 T20 World Cup, 2019 World Cup, and 2021 T20 World Cup.
