The inclusion of senior pacer Mohammad Amir in the Pakistan’s squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament is a hot debate where everyone is sharing his take. While the 27-year has produced poor displays recently, it is hard to ignore the significance of the Karachi Kings player.
Recently, former Pakistan captain Azhar Ali shared his two cents on the debate. The Lahore born believes that Amir carries immense potential and his ability to pick wickets automatically lifts the unit. However, the dexterous batsman acknowledged recent struggles of Amir as he went on to call the series against England a World Cup audition for the Gujjar Khan born cricketer. Furthermore, the 34-year old is backing the green shirts to display their magic and win the forthcoming mega-event.
“It’s up to the selectors but Amir is definitely a very good bowler. He’s lacked form in few ODIs and didn’t perform up to his potential, but we all know he’s world-class. If he performs well against England, he might just get in the squad,” said by the Test specialist.
