All-rounder Imad Wasim will miss Pakistan’s T20 World Cup opener against USA on Thursday due to a persistent side strain, said captain Babar Azam. Babar said Wasim has still not completely recovered from his side strain and the left-arm spinner is under observation.


“The medical staff is monitoring him and he will be available for the remaining matches in the World Cup,” said Babar. 


The seasoned T20 specialist Wasim was brought out of retirement two months back with the World Cup view. The selectors felt that his style of bowling would suit the slow nature of pitches in the Americas. Along with Wasim, left-arm spinner Mohammed Amir too was picked for the ICC showpiece but they have been used sparingly in the series against New Zealand, Ireland and England in the run-up to the tournament. 


Meanwhile at Bridgetown, with the WTC mace and the 50-over World Cup trophy already in their bag, Australia will look to hit the ground running in their quest to become the first team to simultaneously hold all three world titles when they take on Oman here.
