T20 World Cup 2024: The T20 World Cup 2024, jointly organized by the US and West Indies, has started with a bang. Meanwhile, the Pakistani team became the victim of the biggest upset at the start of the tournament. It was defeated by the weak team of the host country America. With this win, the US team has reached the top of Group-A with two wins and four points. At the same time, India is in second place with two points after one match. Pakistan’s next match is against India tomorrow i.e. on June 9, but even before that Pakistan has suffered another major setback. The key player of the team may be out of the tournament due to injury.

Let us tell you that Pakistan’s all-rounder Imad Wasim may be out of the current T20 World Cup 2024 due to his side strain injury. Imad Wasim, who was selected in Pakistan’s T20 World Cup team after coming back from retirement. Actually, Imad has a lot of experience playing in the Caribbean islands. Because Imad Wasim regularly plays in the Caribbean Premier League, but the injury has increased his tension.

Team captain Babar Azam had informed before the match against America that 35-year-old Imad will be out due to injury. Babar said, ‘Imad Wasim has a side strain problem. Unfortunately this means that he will not be available for our opening match, we hope that he will join the team in the remaining matches.’

Mehran Mumtaz may be included in the team

According to media reports, there is an 80 percent chance of Imad Wasim being sent back home after the match against India. Mehran Mumtaz has been kept on standby after passing the fitness test at the NCA in Lahore. Mumtaz was selected because captain Babar Azam and Gary Kirtson wanted a left-arm spinner in the team.

Imad has returned from retirement

It was being told that this was the reason why Imad retired, but he returned from retirement before the T20 World Cup. His performance in the Pakistan Super League was amazing.
