KARACHI: Pakistan’s emerging all-rounder Imad Wasim has left to play Caribbean Premier League (CPL). It will be his first appearance in any foreign league.

Besides Imad, middle-order batsman Umar Akmal will be playing for Trinbago Knight Riders, Shoaib Malik will turn out for Barbados Tridents, while Sohail Tanvir will represent Guyana Amazon Warriors.

Imad has said that he is looking forward to the challenges of the CPL.

I’m working hard to keep proving my credentials.”
