BBL team Melbourne Renegades, has further strengthened their spin attack by roping Pakistani star Imad Wasim in the team. They have signed him for the upcoming season of the Big Bash League (BBL). Imad Wasim, who is a left-arm spinner and middle-order batsman, is the fifth foreign player on the team. Renegades updated the news on Thursday.

Earlier, the Renegades had signed the international wrist-spinners Noor Ahmad and Imran Tahir to play in the upcoming season. They also have brought back Mohammad Nabi, Afghanistan's superstar, an off-spinning all-rounder, for the upcoming season. BBL is scheduled to commence on December 10.

The Melbourne-based team also have Cameron Boyce, a leg-spinner. Boyce was an important player of the team during BBL 2018 title run. Furthermore, he was their top wicket-taker during the last BBL season.  The BBL franchise has a former test spinner, Jon Holland, in their team.

Imad Wasim has helped Karachi Kings to win their first PSL title last month. However, he will not be available for Melbourne Renegades until December 26 as he has prior national team commitments. He is in the T20I team of Pakistan in the upcoming three-match series against New Zealand.

Renegades coach Michael Klinger is pleased with the new inclusion

Renegades coach Michael Klinger has mentioned that Imad is one of the best T20 players in the world. He has the aptitude to influence the games with his ball and end the innings with the bat. Klinger is positive that Imad is an experienced player as he has been a part of a team having recent title success. He is skilled to bowl in the powerplay and he’ll strengthen the middle order batting of Renegades.

Imad Wasim is certainly going to be a valuable asset to the Renegades team. In international cricket, his average is 21.93 with a remarkable economy rate of just 6.17. Due to his talent, he is a handy batsman for the team as well. In the ODI batting, his average is 43 in five half-centuries.
