Twitter reacts to Amir's shock Test retirement

Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir announced his retirement from Test cricket on Friday to concentrate on the limited-overs formats. Amir played only 36 matches in his 10-year Test career, which began in July 2009 against Sri Lanka and saw him play his final game in January 2019 against South Africa.

He took 119 wickets at an average of 30.47 and bagged four five-wicket hauls. One of the major disappointments of Amir's Test career was his unfortunate involvement in the spot-fixing scandal in 2010 in England.

After Amir’s sudden decision of retirement from Test cricket, his fans went into a frenzy and they expressed their reactions via tweets.
