Pakistan cricket team all-rounder Imad Wasim says he is looking forward to returning to cricket with the tour of England this year, a very important series that will give cricketers a chance to return to their routine life.
Talking to Geo News, 31-year-old cricketer Imad Wasim said that not only cricket, but players of every sport are eager to return to the action of their respective sports.
“It’s been a long time since I left the game and now everyone wants to get back to normal as soon as possible. I also want to get back into cricket action as soon as possible,” he said.
The Pakistan cricket team is scheduled to play 3 Tests and 3 ODIs in England from August onwards. These matches will be played in Southampton and Manchester and Imad Wasim being a regular member of the Whiteball team ensures a 25-member squad. There will also be parts.
Imad Wasim says the tour of England is very important for cricket and cricketers, with this tour will move towards the restoration of cricket routine.
He said that whether the cricket is behind closed doors or in front of spectators, the players want a return to cricket at the moment and they are eagerly awaiting the return to the life of a sportsman.
After the revival of cricket, players will also have to follow the ICC’s hygiene guidelines, one of which is that players will not be able to use their saliva to polish the ball.
Imad Wasim says it will not be easy for the players as they are used to the process but now it is necessary to follow the new guideline, when everyone realizes that spitting on the ball can endanger someone else’s life. Every player will refrain from doing so.
To a question, the all-rounder said that he would try to do well in the T20 series against England, wishing that Pakistan would take the lead in regaining its lost top position from the series.
He added that England is a good team, so it is important to play well against it, there are individual goals but the priority is the team’s victory.
