As of now, he sits out of the World Cup squad but the series against England is an audition where successful outings will guarantee him a place in the 15-man squad.
Former English captain Nasser Hussain recently reflected on the matter and praised the think tank of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for taking a sane road. Highlighting the significance of the 27-year old bowler, the India born added that the wicket-taking ability of Amir automatically enhances Pakistan’s chances of winning the World Cup tournament.
However, Nasser added that Amir doesn’t have a birth right to be in squad of Pakistan and would need to produce something better than his recent stats. Furthermore, the cricketer turned commentator lionized the pace battery of Pakistan as he believes that it’ll challenge Amir for the spot and this might get the best out of him. Pakistan would play England in a solitary T20I and five-game ODI series before heading to the all-important 10-team tournament which gets underway on May 30 in England and Wales.
