Pakistan’s bowling was terribly exposed for their inexperience and shortcomings in the recently concluded ODI series versus England, where they were walloped in excess of 340 on 4 consecutive occasions. Failing to control the English batsmen, the pacers in particular were frequently banished to the boundary rope.
Commenting upon the grim state of Pakistan’s bowling lineup, former England skipper Nasser Hussain shed light on the absence of Mohammad Amir affecting their performance. He remarked on Twitter that Amir’s viral chickenpox fever is a blessing in disguise since this has bolstered his value to the team.
Nasser alluded to the fact that by not bowling on the flat decks, Amir has earned himself a spot in the World Cup squad.
