Imad Wasim refuses to wear shirt branded with alcohol sponsor
All-rounder Imad Wasim has joined the likes of Hashim Amla, Imran Tahir and others by refusing to wear the shirt of his Caribbean Premier League side Jamaica Tallawahs with the alcohol sponsor logo.
While playing in the first match for his side against St Kitts and Nevis, Imad was seen wearing the shirt without the logo printed on it and he used a black patch to cover the area of the logo on the front of his shirt. Imad choose this option due to the cricketer’s religious beliefs.
Imad Wasim scored 19 runs of 14 balls and also picked up the crucial wicket of Lendl Simmons in his first outing for the Tallawahs.
“It’s a great honour for me to be a part of CPL and Jamaica Tallawahs. I saw the CPL last year and there’s a lot of great talent in the West Indies, and the CPL standard is really good, so I’m really looking forward to playing with the Tallawahs,” Imad Wasim said earlier in an interview with CPL website.
“There are great players playing in Jamaica [this year], so I will try to learn from them. As a Pakistan player I’m really proud and really happy about being here because it’s career-defining thing.” he added.
