Imad Wasim has previously played for Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League
Melbourne Stars have secured the services on recently-retired Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim, who will be donning the Stars' jersey post-Christmas for the remaining matches in the tournament.
Imad, having previously played for Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League (BBL), will be joining fellow countrymen Usama Mir and Haris Rauf at the Stars.
Melbourne Stars General Manager Blair Crouch expressed enthusiasm about Imad's inclusion, stating, "With Liam available for the first three matches, we identified Imad as a player who could come in and perform a role for us with his left arm spin and lengthen our batting lineup," said Melbourne Stars General Manager Blair Crouch.
"I'm really looking forward to seeing lots of Pakistan fans in the crowd at the MCG with Imad joining his former national teammates, Usama Mir and Haris Rauf."
The 34-year-old represented Pakistan in 55 ODIs and 66 T20Is. He took 109 wickets and scored 1,472 runs in his international career.
