KARACHI: Pakistani cricketers Mohammad Amir and Imad Wasim won the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) with Jamaica Tallahwahs on Friday.
Amir was not playing in the final due to a groin injury; however, he played an integral role in Jamaica’s campaign to the final.
Meanwhile, Imad shined in the mega final as he claimed a wicket and gave away only 18 runs in four overs bowled.
Amir placed fourth overall, while Imad Wasim took the second-most wickets in the competition. Imad took 17 wickets in 13 games at an economy of 5.97, while Amir took 16 in 12 games at an economy of 6.43.
Jamaica Tallawahs beat Barbados Royals by eight wickets, thanks to a sensational batting performance from Brandon King and Shamarah Brooks.
Another Pakistani player, Azam Khan, was on the losing side, but he played a fighting inning for his team, scoring an unbeaten 51 runs in 40 balls to help Barbados Royal post a decent 162-run target.
Amir and Imad took to their official Twitter handles after the win.
“God is very kind Alhumdulillah for everything. thanku Jamaica Tallawahs for great hospitality,” the left-arm pacer wrote.
“Alhumdulillah for everything. thanku Jamaica Tallawahs for great hospitality,” the all-rounder wrote.
It is worth mentioning here that Imad is competing for a berth in the Pakistan team after being dropped during the series against Bangladesh in November 2021, whereas Amir only plays franchise cricket following his retirement from international cricket in December 2020.
