Imam will be playing alongside fellow Pakistani cricketer and captain, Babar Azam, who leads the Strikers. The team management has recognized Imam’s expertise in the limited-overs format, making him a valuable addition to their lineup. Previously, he had represented Peshawar Zalmi in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
With 78 T20 matches under his belt, Imam brings substantial experience to the Strikers. He has amassed 2143 runs at a strike rate of 123.37 throughout his T20 career.
