Karachi Kings captain Imad Wasim, expressed his backing for Mohammad Amir, the left-arm pacer who has faced criticism from Shahid Afridi for his aggressive behaviour towards young players on the field. Wasim shared that he believes a fast bowler should have an aggressive streak and any heated moments are not intentional.
“A fast bowler should be aggressive. I don’t think he does anything intentionally, it happens in heated moments,” he said in a post-match conference.
He also mentioned that as long as there are no objections from match officials, he has no problem with Amir’s conduct. “As long as there is no objection on him by match officials or any fines imposed on him, I don’t have any issue,” he added, while also mentioning that he would hold the same stance for other players as well.

Furthermore, Imad was questioned about whether the highly publicized match against Peshawar Zalmi caused his team to lose focus. However, the Karachi Kings leader refused to discuss the Zalmi captain, Babar Azam.
“It is not like that. Everything that comes on media, sometimes it true, sometimes it is not. I don’t want to talk about Babar, because the way our team is playing, we need to focus on results,” he said.
“We are unable to finish the games, which is one of the biggest factors for our defeats. Secondly we are not bowling well at the death. We just need one win to get the momentum and turn things around,” he added.
