Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim has admitted that he will always be “grateful” to former head coach Mickey Arthur as he always had faith in him.
Imad has been in good form as of late as during the World Cup, he scored 162 runs in six games at an average of 54. He also took two wickets at an average of 94.
The 30-year-old is currently playing for Nottinghamshire in the 2019 Vitality Blast, which is England’s domestic Twenty20 tournament, and has claimed eight wickets in six matches at an average of 16.87. He has also accumulated 39 runs at an average of 13.
“The fact that Mickey kept faith in my abilities is something that I will always cherish about his time as head coach for Pakistan,” Imad told The Cricket Paper as quoted by PakPassion. “He kept on playing me in the side and any cricketer, if shown such belief, will eventually come good and I feel that this is how it turned out for me.
“He helped me immensely with my cricket and worked very hard on my batting skills. I got along very well with him and will always be grateful to him for his faith in me and his insistence on keeping me in the side.”
