Pakistan are set to face the United States in their opening World Cup match on June 6

In a setback for the Pakistan team, all-rounder Imad Wasim has been ruled out of the first T20 World Cup match against the US.

Wasim’s unavailability for the first match was confirmed on Wednesday by captain Babar Azam, who said the all-rounder was sidelined due to a side strain.

Despite the setback, the Pakistan skipper is optimistic about Imad Wasim’s participation in the remaining matches of the mega cricket tournament.

“Imad Wasim is suffering from a side strain, which means he won’t be able to play in our opening match,” Babar Azam said.

“Although Imad won’t play the first game, we hope he will be available for the rest of the matches,” he added.
