Former Pakistan wicket-keeper batter, Rashid Latif, has called on all-rounder Imad Wasim to reconsider his choice to retire from international cricket. 

Latif took to the social media platform 'X' and emphasized the valuable contribution Imad brings to the team, labeling him as Pakistan's best spinner and a crucial asset with the bat.

“Mohammad Hafeez should strive to bring Imad back. If leagues need to be played, consider separation from the central contract, but keep yourself available for the Pakistan team,” Rashid Latif wrote.
