Pakistan bowling coach Azhar Mahmood has noted that struggling left-arm seamer, Mohammad Amir has to work on his fitness in order to regain his form with the ball. Amir is having a torrid time with the ball in the ODI’s as he has managed to take only five wickets in 14 ODIs at a dismal average of 92.60 since the Champions Trophy final in 2017.
“Amir is a wonderful bowler. But since he returned, he was playing non-stop cricket so we have to do work on his fitness. If Amir is fit and bowling well then we know he is a wicket-taker,” Azhar stated.
Once Amir improves his fitness levels, the bowling coach is certain that the 26-year-old will be among the wickets column on a regular basis. He pointed out that since he participates in all three formats for Pakistan, hence it is more important for him to be fully fit.
