The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has granted a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to all-rounder Imad Wasim to participate in the upcoming Big Bash League (BBL).

The 31-year-old, who is currently with the Pakistan squad in New Zealand, is expected to depart for Australia after the upcoming Twenty20 International (T20I) series against the Kiwis.

Wasim, however, could be asked to stay in New Zealand for a longer period if management feels that his presence in the Test side is needed.

A PCB source confirmed the news of the grant of the NOC for Imad while revealing that the all-rounder might not be able to play in the earlier games of the tournament due to his national commitments.
