Pakistan rising all rounder Imad Waseem faces setback

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim faces setback with his repeated injuries hampering his career at the early stage.

He left for England on early Wednesday morning from Islamabad to get his knee treated.

Imad has not played a competitive game after suffering a head injury in the match against Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

However, during his time off the field, the Cardiff-born left-hander also suffered a relapse of his knee injury which he originally sustained during the T10 competition in December last year.

Because of that, Imad was also not selected for the national team in the three-match T20I series against West Indies in early April.

Sources confirmed that Imad will work with a knee specialist in England and is eyeing a return to the national team for the two-match T20I series against Scotland in July.
