Srinagar: Despite not making the cut, Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim has termed selection for the upcoming Asia Cup 2023 great one.
“I just want the Pakistan team to win the World Cup and Asia Cup and Afghanistan series, and I am very happy with the team they have announced,” he said in an interview on a YouTube channel interview.
“I am looking forward to watch them play because in ODI, Pakistan has got a very strong team and they are favorites in my opinion, both in the Asia Cup and the World Cup,” he added.
He also mentioned that he was ready to feature in the ODIs for Pakistan if given an opportunity. The 34-year-old had last played an ODI for his country back in 2020 at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium before getting left out.
“If someone asks me about it, and if someone does, there has to be something about it, and you can’t just call a person suddenly two days or three days before World Cup.
“There has to be clarity, and Mickey Arthur is that sort of a person, and Inzamam-ul-Haq is sort of a person who gives you clarity and calls you up and tells you what’s going on and obviously who wouldn’t want to play World Cup for Pakistan, like it’s an amazing thing.
“I have not retired from ODI cricket but if an opportunity comes in, I am very looking forward, and I will be up for it.”
