Former captain Mohammad Hafeez expressed his doubts about the impact of Imad Wasim in Islamabad United after their narrow defeat against Peshawar Zalmi in the ongoing PSL 9.

In a thrilling encounter at the Gaddafi Stadium, Peshawar Zalmi clinched victory against Islamabad United by 8 runs. Imad Wasim bowled one over and gave away 17 runs, meanwhile, he also failed with the bat, scoring one run.

Mohammad Hafeez, speaking on a local sports channel, raised concerns about Imad Wasim’s performance, questioning his effectiveness as both a batsman and a bowler.

Hafeez expressed his perplexity, stating, “I don’t understand Imad’s impact at all. As a bowler, as a batsman, he is nowhere in the PSL. There are higher expectations from Imad.”

Furthermore, Hafeez also commented on Faheem Ashraf’s dwindling impact in recent PSL seasons, highlighting his subdued performance in the match, where he managed just 1 run and remained wicketless.

“Faheem’s impact seems to have decreased over the past few PSL seasons. The total out-of-form performance of Faheem and Imad is dragging Islamabad United down from a bowling point of view,” Hafeez added.

Despite acknowledging Shadab Khan’s commendable bowling performance, Hafeez pointed out tactical errors made by Islamabad United during the match.

“Shadab bowled well, but he shouldn’t have saved his over. Overall, Islamabad is making some very bad tactical errors,” he concluded.

It’s noteworthy that Imad Wasim was traded from Karachi Kings to Islamabad United ahead of PSL 9, along with Hasan Ali, in a bid to bolster the team’s performance.
