He is a left-handed batsman and a left-arm orthodox bowler. He is the current captain of Karachi Kings.

In August 2018, he was one of thirty-three players to be awarded a central contract for the 2018–19 season by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).[3][4]

Early career[edit]

Wasim was born in Swansea, Wales.[5] His father briefly worked in the UK as an engineer.[6] Wasim's parents moved to Pakistan when he was at a very early age, and he consequently played all first-class cricket there.[7] He became the first Welsh-born cricketer to represent Pakistan and loves Pakistan very much.[8][9]

International career[edit]

He made his Twenty20 International debut for Pakistan against Zimbabwe in Lahore on 24 May 2015.[10] He made his One Day International debut for Pakistan against Sri Lanka on 19 July 2015.[11] He was selected in the Pakistan squad for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20. Wasim was also a member of the winning Pakistan team in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. In the final against India, Wasim scored a swift 25 runs from 21 deliveries, including a six and a boundary, and helped Pakistan reach a massive total of 338 runs. This total was more than enough to defeat India in the final, by a world-record 180 runs, and hand Pakistan its maiden ICC Champions Trophy title.[12]

Award[edit]

  • PCB's T20I Player of the year – 2017.[13]

Controversies and scandals[edit]

Imad has reportedly been dating a Dutch girl with Afghani origin and has been in the news for all the wrong reasons related to the incident. The woman alleged that Imad has been using her and multiple picture and videos have surfaced since then. Imad made an unsuccessful attempt to corner himself by making video to corner himself from the matter. [14]
