PAK vs US: Imad Wasim Ruled Out of Pakistan's First T20 World Cup Match

Pakistan’s national cricket team, currently in the United States for the T20 World Cup 2024, has suffered a setback as key all-rounder Imad Wasim has been ruled out for their opening match. Confirming Wasim’s unavailability for the first match, captain Babar Azam said that the all-rounder was sidelined due to a side strain.

“Imad Wasim is suffering from a side strain, which means he won’t be able to play in our opening match,” Babar revealed. Despite the setback, the skipper was optimistic about Wasim’s participation in the remaining matches of the mega cricket tournament. “Although Imad won’t play the first game, we hope that he will be available for the rest of the matches,” he added.
