Pakistan Smoking League: Video Of Imad Wasim During PSL Final Triggers Severe Backlash

Video Of Imad Wasim During PSL Final Triggers Severe Backlash: Imad Wasim, an all-rounder for Islamabad United, shut down Multan Sultans at 159/9 on Sunday in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2024 final with a 5-wicket haul.

With some significant wickets against David Willey, Yasir Khan, and other players, Wasim turned in one of his best T20 league outings.

However, Wasim sparked a major scandal shortly after his on-field wizardry when he was discovered smoking in the team’s dressing room during the game.

Imad was caught on camera smoking a cigarette in the Multan Sultans dressing room. The moment went viral on social media, and the player faced a lot of criticism.

Islamabad United’s victory in the final was made possible by Wasim’s incredible 5/23 in 4 overs. Even after limiting the Multan Sultans to 159, Wasim’s team had some difficulty achieving the goal.

The winning runs of the game were finally scored on the last ball of play.

“Didn’t know that it would go on to be the best ever tournament. Just wanted to have an impact in the team’s win. It was a new experience – taking five wickets in the final. Took lesson that we should’ve finished it one over earlier. I’m happy playing cricket. Trying my utmost to contribute for the team. 4-5 years of cricket left in me,” Imad Wasim said after the final as he was named the player of the match.

Felt that the more time I had, could utilise it better with bat. At number 6-7, I don’t have the power game. Have tried to fix my technical issues as a bowler. That’s a long process, and the improvements will come. Watching the match is tough for me. In the middle I don’t feel pressure, but watching it from outside is tough. I make life difficult for people next to me as well, so I don’t sit with batters who are supposed to walk in next. Special mention to the owners who have backed me. I was captain for five years and we didn’t reach final, but they backed me. Lot of things I feel that make this trophy very important for us,” he said.
