    Imad Wasim injury not serious and he will be available for selection for the World Cup [Post#34]

    According to local media reports, Wasim twisted his knee and is currently undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy. The youngster has been among the leading performers for his side and was especially impressive in the recently concluded series against Australia where he scored 141 runs and also picked up three wickets.

    Earlier, this month the Pakistani all rounder made rapid gains at Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim has made huge gains at ICC Player Rankings.

    The left-hander, who captained his side against Australia in the last two matches gained 16 places to reach 68th among batsmen, climbed seven places to reach 37th in the list of bowlers and moved from 16th to joint-sixth among all-rounders.

    Imad will have to give fitness test conducted by the PCB in coming weeks, before the big event of World Cup 2019.

    A potential blessing in disguise thread?

    One things for sure, if Pakistan gets anywhere near the semi finals, it wont be because of Imad. For me he is blocking the space a match winner Umer Khan.

    On what basis are u calling umer khan a match winner?
    People want Umer khan in the side just because of the PSL.
    These are the same people whom say psl shouldn't be used for national selection.

    I know it is a risk but a risk worth taking. Imad Wasim & Co havent been setting world records upon world records. We are a minnow ranked team. Time to take some risks. Shall we?

    Do you think they will select Umer Khan for WC in place of him? A person not even called for fitness tests, didn't play against Australia and hasn't set the stage on fire in Pakistan Cup, I don't think so.

    There are 4 possibilities of his replacement:

    1)Add a spinner like Yasir Shah or Mohammad Nawaz, who won't have any positive impact during WC for Pakistan but can for the opposition team.

    2)Add a Batsman who is a part time bowler and can bowl 10 overs together with M Hafeez and Haris Sohail. Ex: Ifthikar Ahmed, Khusdil Shah e.t.c

    3) Add an extra Fast bowler, as spinners won't have much say.

    4)Add a power hitter/3rd opener which is failing to make it to WC in the original 15. Like Asif Ali, Abid Ali, Umar Akmal, Shan Masood e.t.c

    Knowing our brilliant Chief Selector, he will take his favourite Yasir Shah to the World Cup, who isn't even a competition to Imad with the ball alone. In terms of batting, Imad has performed at the death regularly in the past few games and I hope he makes it as he is one of the few in our squad who can increase RR during the end overs.

    Imad Wasim is needed in this team. He keeps it tight with he bowling and more importantly is one of the only players capable of hitting down the order.

    Why do people keep making this mistake? Imad is not playing as a specialist spinner. Umer's competition is Shadab.

    We have invested a lot in Imad and didnt prepare any other spinner or a player who plays a similar role so not sure what how this will go if he does get injured.

    Umer Khan should be on backup anyways as you never know about Imad's injury.

    Also i dont think it can be remotely possible that Umer, Imad and Haris Sohail all play in the same X1 in WC. Even Haris is a better turner of ball than Imad.

    Shadab
    Hafeez
    Umer
    Haris

    is a decent spin attack with much more variety.

    Btw recently why is everyone against Shadab so much especially his batting. The kid has 3 50s in England in test matches and has won us a t20/odi match in last over. He has potential with the bat, yes not a big hitter but he can do a job at death with his improvisations.

    I dunno why people are bringing up Umer Khan. Maybe it'll get him into the squad if Imad's injured (even that I doubt. But clearly if Imad's not playing, Faheem's taking his spot.

    Imad Wasim is essential to our success. His batting is not amazing, but it is the best we got. He keeps it tight with the ball. His economy in England is 4.50. Not only that, but the way he bowls likely aids the ball in reverse swinging for the fast bowlers. He can guarantee that the ball will land on one side every ball he bowls.

    Shadab is going to be the lead spinner in England anyway, with Hafeez/Malik/Sohail as 6th bowlers.

    Best case scenario Imad gets a few games as the second spinner. Worst case scenario he warms the bench, not much different from being injured

    Blessing in disguise how? He's an essential part of our team, keeps the run rate in check, roughs up the ball and is a more than decent bat.

    I don't understand how you can compare an all rounder to a pure spinner?

    It's like getting rid of Jaques Kallis and adding in Morne Morkel.

    It doesn't make sense, Umer's competition is the pseudo all rounder in Shadab Khan.

    Tests and ODIs are not comparable mate.

    Shadab can hold a bat, just because you can hold a bat doesn't automatically make you an all rounder

    Really really bad news for us. Imad as a batsman is even better than Malik. Now Yasir (I love him a lot as a test spinner but not in LOI) will enter to our ODI team with front door instead of back door.

    Imad is no big loss. His bowling has been patchy recently and he is not ready to primarily play as a batsman, yet. He would probably be (or at least he should be) on the bench during the World Cup with Shadab playing as the sole spinner. Hafeez, Haris and Malik, if he improves his form should be enough for the fifth bowling quota.

    However, I hope he recovers in time, InshaAllah. He must have been waiting for this opportunity for years and there is no gurantee that he will get another shot at the WC.

    There is no other striker in our squad.

    I don’t know why people dislike Imad so much. Everyone is out there looking for a pollard or a Jos Butler but don’t understand that there isn’t any batsmen like that in Pakistan right now.

    Imad is the best striker we have in Pakistan, he’s not great but can get the job done pretty well. He can make 50 of 30 on a good day which is more than good enough for us.

    Lol the runs Imad gives you at death, I doubt Umer Khan will save during his bowling. We need Imad in the side more for his 30-40 runs with bat, his bowling will be a bonus.

    So he will miss the much awaited fitness test? I think he was also of the players who didnt pass the fitness test in Aus series.

    He is an important member of the team as he provides decent lower order hitting ability and economical bowling so hopefully he recovers well.

    Its very clear there is no injury, hes doing it so he doesnt have to give the test infront of other players and fail. He will give it a week or 2 after and pass when no one is there to witness it. The sad part is Abid Ali, Junaid will fail and be discarded while this crap player will get a free pass to the world cup and be useless.

    Bro!!! Its Either Imad or Yasir. Imad as a batsman, fielder and bowler is way ahead of Yasir in LOI. Hope Sadab will be cleared to prevent Yasir's inclusion.

    Both Abid and Junaid shoud be in the squad ahead of Imam/Shan and Abbas/Usman.
    But with Inzi anything possible. He may recall Gul/M Sami to surprise us in negative way.

    He is one of the most crucial players for Pakistan in limited overs and a far better bowler & batsman than the over-rated show-off Shadab. It would not be a bad idea if he is promoted to bat at #6, he can be poor man's Suresh Raina.

    It may be fine now, but I have a feeling his knee will fire up in the WC. He also had a knee injury post CT17, which kept him out of action for a bit.

    Lol, just like last time have zero expectations from this team for this years WC, don't see a repeat of the CT heroics, other teams will not underestimate Pakistan this time.

    If Imad is playing, it's bad for Pakistan.

    Batsmen will love hitting his darts on those batting pitches.

    As a batsman he's poor as a late order batter or finisher, just doesn't have the big shots, nor can accelerate at will. Yes, he's a good accumulator though but this kind of batsmen are costing us matches in the late order.

    Imad Wasim is great, would be a big miss if he was to miss the WC but looks like he should be selected

    He can accumulate at a strike rate of 150 which is amazing.
