With the ability to bowl a sort of an in-slider with the new ball to right-handers, Imad Wasim provides Pakistan with a very handy option to start off the bowling attack, before coming back in the middle stages to strangle the run-rate with his tight nagging lines. Imad doesn't really turn the ball a lot, and so relies on accuracy and variation in pace to be successful.

The list of accolades for the wily southpaw is a long one. He was a long-term skipper for Pakistan at the age-group levels. He has also led Islamabad for a decent period of time. And when his T20I debut happened, the backdrop was historic. Cricket had returned to Pakistan after six years and Imad Wasim got a T20I cap in the second game of the series. Pakistan won that close encounter and the series 2-0.
