Imad Wasim etching his name in history books with sensational fifer


Multan Sultans, as expected, chose to bat first on a typically flat surface in Karachi. However, they encountered the formidable challenge of Imad Wasim, whose exceptional bowling completely disrupted their plans of setting a competitive total.

With the pitch offering just a hint of turn, the left-arm orthodox spinner spun a web around the powerful Sultans batting lineup, becoming the first bowler in the tournament’s history to claim a five-wicket haul in the final match and propelling Islamabad United into a commanding position.

Imad made crucial breakthroughs right from his first over. He outsmarted a charging Yasir Khan with flight, inducing him to edge one to short third-man before delivering an arm ball to dismantle David Willey’s stumps, leaving the Sultans in a precarious position at 14/2.

Ten overs later, Imad targeted the dangerous Johnson Charles, tempting the Caribbean batsman with exceptional flight, resulting in a top-edge caught by Naseem Shah at short fine-leg.

However, Imad reserved his best for his final over, inducing Khushdil Shah to hole out on the boundary before a brilliant delivery turned sharply away from Chris Jordan, catching the outside edge and settling into Azam Khan’s gloves.
