Pakistan’s former captain, Wasim Akram believes that Mohammad Amir can make a comeback to Pakistan’s World Cup squad and stated that it will be wrong to discard him at this stage. This is not the first time the legendary swing bowler has put his weight behind the struggling Amir.
“We can’t discount Amir from the World Cup. Amir would have been my first choice for the World Cup considering English conditions where he performs well,” said Wasim. He recently coached Amir in this year’s PSL edition and believes that Amir will come good, once his rhythm will be back.
Amir still has time to make amends and make his case stronger for the World Cup squad by performing well against England in the upcoming series. The 27-year-old is yet to feature in any of the World Cup edition having missed the tournament in both 2011 and 2015 due to an embarrassing five-year ban over match-fixing.
