Former Pakistan pacer – Mohammad Amir made an unexpected announcement of his retirement last year which literally rocked the entire cricketing fraternity. Amir expressed he was being tortured by the team management which led to him making such a shocking decision.
The speedster was going through a horrid phase in the last 2 years of his career. Amir got a chance to represent his national side in 7 T20Is in 2019, however could not manage to impress as he took only 7 wickets at an economy rate of 7.82. Things went further downhill last year as the pacer failed to claim even in a single wicket in the shortest-format of the game.
Pakistan’s skipper – Babar Azam cleared the air regarding Amir’s retirement and claimed that his disastrous performances was the prime reason due to which he did not make it to the Pakistan’s squad for the recently concluded tour of New Zealand. However, the batting sensation did not rule out the possibility of Amir’s comeback if he reconsiders his decision and regains the lost form.
“Mohammad Amir was dropped as his performances were not up to the mark. If he regains his form and continues to perform, then selectors will definitely consider his return and talk to him,” said Babar Azam while speaking to the media.
No idea why Amir made up everything: Misbah-ul-Haq
Pakistan’s head coach – Misbah-ul-Haq did not shy away from sharing his response on Amir’s startling revelations. The former Pakistan captain asserted that instead of making up a fake story, Amir should have focused on making his comeback to the men-in-green.
“Nobody was supporting his selection on the basis of performance. I have no idea why he made up everything and tried to give this whole scenario a context that is out of proportion. For him, it was a simple method: go back and prove his form and get back in the team and everything else is irrelevant,” Misbah was quoted as saying in a press conference.
