Reverse Retirement, Latif Pleads to Imad Wasim

Islamabad, Pakistan - Former Pakistan cricket captain Rashid Latif has appealed to all-rounder Imad Wasim to reconsider his recent decision to retire from international cricket. Imad announced his retirement from cricket via a social media post on Friday, November 24.

In a video message posted on social media, Latif said that Wasim's retirement is a loss for Pakistan cricket and that he should reconsider his decision.

"Imad Wasim should withdraw his retirement decision. He is a very talented and experienced player who can still contribute a lot to the Pakistan team," Latif said.

"Imad is a very good all-rounder who can bat and bowl well. He is also a very good fielder and is always very athletic on the field," Latif added.

Imad, 34, has played 51 one-day internationals and 9 test matches for Pakistan. He has scored over 1,000 runs and taken over 100 wickets in both formats.

Latif's plea comes on the heels of Pakistan's disappointing World Cup 2023 campaign, during which Imad Wasim was notably absent from the squad despite the team's struggle with a thin spin attack.

It remains to be seen whether Wasim will heed Latif's call and reverse his retirement decision. However, the former Pakistan captain's plea is a reflection of the high regard in which Wasim is held by his former teammates and coaches.

Imad Wasim is a talented all-rounder who has a lot to offer Pakistan cricket. Let's hope that he reconsiders his retirement decision and continues to represent his country at the highest level.
