Star Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim on Saturday took back his retirement from international cricket and announced his availability for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, reported the 24NewsHD TV channel.

He had announced his retirement from international cricket in November last year.

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, Imad shared that he reconsidered his retirement after meeting PCB officials and will now be available to serve Pakistan in the T20I format.

“I am happy to announce that pursuant to meeting PCB officials, I have reconsidered my retirement and am delighted to declare my availability for Pakistan cricket in T20i format leading up to ICC T20i World Cup 2024,” stated Imad.

“I would like to thank the PCB for reposing trust in me and I would give my very best to bring laurels to my country. Pakistan comes first!”

Wasim made his international debut in May 2015 against Zimbabwe and went on to represent Pakistan in 55 ODIs and 66 T20Is. He took 109 wickets and scored 1,472 runs in his international career.

Wasim was part of Islamabad United who reached the HBL Pakistan Super League final to take the trophy on Monday night.

He gave three match-winning performances on the trot for United both with the bat and the ball — he took a five-wicket haul in the final.
