Pakistan team director Mohammad Hafeez asserted on Tuesday that former all-rounder Imad Wasim took retirement despite being informed that the latter was part of the future plan.
Hafeez also cleared the air regarding fast bowler Mohammad Amir. “I had a contact with Mohammad Amir to suggest that he take back his retirement and join the domestic circuit if he is interested in playing for Pakistan.”
“Amir made it clear that he now sees his future in the international leagues,” Hafeez said.
– Babar Azam's bright future –
Hafeez expressed optimism that former captain Babar Azam will definitely “shine” by putting up strong performances in the future.
He made it clear that former captain Babar Azam and Shan Masood have a strong bond. “I am an admirer of Babar Azam’s capabilities. We will also take Babar Azam on board over the right strategies,” he added.
