Former Test cricketer and academy director at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Mudassar Nazar has emphasized the importance of fast bowler Mohammad Amir in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Amir is not a part of the World Cup squad due to his poor record in limited overs cricket in recent times.
Mudassar said that Amir can play an important role for Pakistan in the mega event and has the potential to lead the bowling lineup from the front. “The main bowler who we have been depending on the last few years, Mohammad Amir has a question mark. It is necessary for him to be fit and bowl because the rest of the attack is inexperienced,” he said.
Moreover, the former captain was also of the opinion that Pakistan’s provisional bowling attack for the World Cup is weak as far as experience is concerned. “The bowlers including Shaheen Shah Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain, Faheem Ashraf are young. They are new and will take time to learn to deal with pressure,” he added.
