Retired all-rounder Imad Wasim finds himself at a crossroads as he contemplates a return to international cricket following his retirement in November last year.

Despite his stellar performances in the recently concluded PSL 9, the all-rounder faces numerous challenges in his comeback bid.

His decision to retire was partly influenced by the challenges in obtaining NOCs for franchise leagues, a common issue faced by players navigating the complex landscape of modern cricket.

However, the 35-year-old has left the door open for a return, expressing his willingness to don the national colours whenever called upon.


His remarkable display in the PSL, where he amassed 126 runs and claimed 12 wickets, has reignited hopes of a comeback among former cricketers and fans alike.

However, despite the clamour for his return, Imad Wasim has yet to receive direct communication from Chief Selector Wahab Riaz, raising questions about the selectors’ intentions.

While some within the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) advocate for the inclusion of new talent, others, including captain Shaheen Afridi, see Imad’s experience and skillset as invaluable assets to the team.

Meanwhile, rumours abound regarding potential conflicts between Imad Wasim and Babar Azam, highlighting the need for dialogue to mend any strained relationships within the squad.


The veteran all-rounder, remains steadfast in his stance, insisting on addressing his concerns before considering a return.

He fears being brought back only to be sidelined once more, emphasizing the importance of clarity and stability in his role.

Additionally, Imad seeks a reassessment of his central contract category, reflecting his desire for a better category.

As the Pakistan cricket team gears up for a fitness camp and an upcoming series against New Zealand, the question of Imad’s return lingers in the air.
