Imad Wasim, the standout all-rounder for the Karachi Kings, is sure that his club would make a big return in the PSL following three straight losses in the first three matches.
Imad, the former captain who was replaced as Kings’ captain by Babar Azam this season, stated that the squad will make a comeback in the tournament, despite the fact that players have been injured.
“We still have seven games left; we’ll give it our all in the remaining games and try to make a comeback; it’s not over yet.” Players were hurt following the loss in the previous game, but the overall atmosphere in the locker room is positive, he added. “We have a fantastic coaching staff with us, and the players are rooting for each other.”
“We have the Multan Sultans as an example; they didn’t start well in the last edition but came back in the second leg and won the tournament; this gives us the confidence that we can do the same,” he said. Imad believes that one good performance might ignite a spark, causing everything to shift. He insisted that the team not become scared after three losses, but rather concentrate on how to learn from their mistakes and perform well in future games.
In response to a query, Imad stated that Babar always values his viewpoint and that the two are on good terms.
“We made our debuts together and are quite familiar with one other.” He always respects my views, both in Karachi Kings and on the Pakistan team,” Imad stated.
The all-rounder went on to say that he doesn’t want to be a top scorer or wicket-taker, but rather wants to contribute to the team’s success.
“I want to do things that will benefit my team, things that will help them win games and do well in the tournament.” Along with that, I’ve gained some bowling skills, which I’d like to enhance during the event,” he said.
When asked about Team Pakistan’s performance, Imad claimed that head coach Saqlain Mushtaq had encouraged the players in a unique way during the World Cup and that he deserves credit for the team’s success.
He believes that the team’s current form can help them win the next World Cup.
“Based on the way the players are doing and how everyone is supporting one another, I’m confident that if we keep playing like this, we’ll do well in the next T20 world cup in Australia,” he said.
