KARACHI: Twenty20 cricket’s top ranked bowler Imad Wasim is all set to feature in the Twenty20 blast in England for Durham county, the all-rounder said on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old is waiting for his visa and if it is issued he will fly to feature in the Twenty20 blast.
“It’s a great opportunity to play for Durham in the Twenty20 blast. I am waiting for the visa,” said Imad, who retained his world number one Twenty20 bowler ranking on Monday.
He has replaced South African Imran Tahir as world’s top ranked Twenty20 bowler.
Imad also received good news of his elevation to “B” category in the central contracts issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board. H was placed in “C” category in the contracts announced last year.
Mohammad Amir is representing Essex and Shahid Afridi is playing for Hampshire in the T20 blast in England.
