Imad is one of best T20 players in world: Renegades’ coach Klinger


Karachi: Melbourne Renegades head coach Michael Klinger is excited after the signing of Pakistan’s all-rounder Imad for the upcoming edition of Big Bash League (BBL) season 10.

Klinger termed the 31-year-old Imad as one of the best in the shorter format of the game because of his diversified skills.

“Imad is one of the best T20 players in the world with his ability to impact games with the ball and to finish the innings with the bat,” Coach Michael Klinger said.

“He’s an experienced player with recent title success, he’s capable of bowling in the powerplay and he’ll strengthen our middle-order batting,” he added.

On December 1, PCB has granted a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to Imad. He will join Renegades after the conclusion of Pakistan’s T20I series against New Zealand which is scheduled to take place from December 18-22.

Imad joins Rilee Rossouw, Imran Tahir, Mohammad Nabi and Noor Ahmad as the overseas players on the Renegades playing roster.

Note, Imad led the Karachi Kings to the Pakistan Super League (PSL) title last month. He also played 11 games for Nottinghamshire in England’s domestic T20 competition before the side went on to win the title in October.
