PSL 2022: Babar Azam heaps praises on match winner Amir

Published on

Karachi Kings skipper Babar Azam has identified Mohammad Amir as the team’s game changer and match-winner for the PSL 2022.

In a virtual press conference, Kings’ captain Babar said has declared spearhead Mohammad Amir as a match-winner bowler.

“Amir has done very well for Karachi Kings in PSL. He has won many matches and the match-winner for Karachi Kings,” said Babar Azam in a press conference.

“The new coach of Karachi Kings Peter Morris is a seasoned coach. There have been good discussions with them regarding planning. Karachi Kings will do well this season,” he aimed.

It’ll be for the first time in franchise cricket that Pakistan’s all format captain is getting a chance to lead in franchise competition. He also addressed the fitness issue of his opening partner Sharjeel Khan.

“It is a responsibility. I will focus more and try to do better,” Babar said.

“It is good to open with Sharjeel Khan. He is a game-changer and is currently working on his fitness. But the requirements of international cricket are different. I think for international cricket, he still needs to improve his fitness,” he added.

Amir is the fifth-highest wicket-taker in PSL history, with 54 wickets in 59 matches at an average of 27.30 and will be raring to go in next year’s PSL. He also reached a staggering 300 wickets landmark in T20 cricket, getting his name among the few bowlers to achieve this feat alongside Rashid Khan, Lasith Malinga, and Dwayne Bravo.

PSL 2022 will kick off in Karachi on January 27, where 2020 PSL champions Karachi Kings will face defending champions Multan Sultans.
