Imad Wasim suggested that Mohammad Rizwan should be prepared to adapt if asked to bat lower in the order as Babar Azam did in the New Zealand series.

During an interview with a local news outlet, Imad Wasim discussed the Pakistan team’s performance. He also offered some valuable suggestions for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup.

He appreciated the successful adaptation of Babar Azam to the one-down position during the T20I series against New Zealand. However, Imad suggested other players, especially Mohammad Rizwan should also follow the example and be ready to leave their comfort zone.

“Babar has adapted very well after batting at one down position. He scored three consecutive fifties. Similarly, Rizwan should adapt as well if he is asked to bat down the order,” Imad said.

Imad also offered advice to Pakistan’s T20I captain, Shaheen Afridi, urging him to prioritize the team’s best interests and follow his instincts while making strategic decisions.

“Shaheen is like my younger brother. I would advise him to approach everything with sincerity, prioritizing what is in the best interest of Pakistan. He has people around him, who can give him good suggestions,” Imad said.

Imad also emphasized the significance of finding the right balance in the team’s lineup to maximize performance on the field.

“Shaheen did a good thing that he tried different opening combinations. It would be better for him to continue checking different combinations before the World Cup. If the new combinations don’t work, then they can go back to Babar and Rizwan as the opening pair,” he concluded.

Addressing speculations about his potential return to the national team, Imad Wasim also clarified that Shaheen did not discussed this matter with him.
