Pakistan fast-bowler Mohammad Amir recently made a shocking announcement regarding his Test retirement with an immediate effect. Amir’s decision came as a massive surprise for the majority of his fans and some of the legends like Wasim Akram also questioned his decision.
Rashid Latif is the latest former player to have pondered over Amir’s retirement decision and believes the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is to blame for Amir’s decision to walk away from the longest format.
“I think it is the PCB, who is at fault. They never focus on ensuring national assets should be kept under control. Already Pakistan is struggling to find fast bowlers. Pakistan plays very few Tests every year as Pakistan is the only Test-playing nation, which gets step-motherly treatment from ICC as far as allocation of Test matches each year is concerned,” Rashid said in an interview.
Former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Rashid Latif further stated that “nobody will remember” left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir if he continues to stop playing for the national team.
