So yesterday Imad Wasim took Pakistan to a huge win over Australia. It was their first T20 match of the series in Abu Dhabi that the two countries are playing (we’ve already seen some drama over the now infamous “biscuit” trophy becoming a source of ridicule). Anyway, back to Imad.
This match was labelled as the big comeback for Imad Wasim and his terrific performance is winning him lots of fans
After his sudden rise in the PSL he had kind of disappeared from public consciousness due to some personal scandals, and health reasons. In the match last night Imad bowled over both Australian openers within just the first over and it was all downhill for Australia, from there.
His stunning performance won him the player of the match award
