Pakistan’s losing streak isn’t coming to an end as they now lost to West Indies by delivering a hideous performance in their World Cup opener. After posting a paltry total of 105 runs on the board, Pakistani bowlers were hammered to handle West Indies an easy 7-wicket win at Nottingham.
Only positive in an otherwise gloomy outing for Pakistan was the bowling performance of the veteran paceman Mohammad Amir who looked to be in good shape. Picking 3 scalps against a dangerous side like West Indies boosted his morale as the 27-year old is adamant to make this ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament a memorable event for him.
Sharing his views, the Gujjar born admitted that he has failed to take wickets recently but added that his overall bowling hasn’t been bad. However, Amir promised to give his all in the running edition of the mega-event as he is eyeing wickets to aid Pakistan’s chances of winning another ICC title in England and Wales.
“My target is to take wickets and be third-time lucky in England after winning the World Twenty20 and Champions Trophy. I am sure things will get better. I know I haven’t taken wickets but I have not bowled badly. I will do my best in this tournament,” said by Amir as he moved to do a bit of self-assessment.
