Asif laments over Amir's lack of swing

Pakistan fast-bowler, Mohammad Asif believes that his old bowling partner, Mohammad Amir is not swinging the ball as he used to do before against the right-handers. Asif reckons that Amir no longer poses a threat to the right-handed batsmen because he is unable to bring the ball back in.

However, Asif acknowledged that the 27-year-old did bowl a couple of good spells in the recently concluded World Cup. The left-arm pacer also emerged as Pakistan’s leading wicket-taker in the World Cup with 17 wickets to his name.

Asif formed a brilliant Test bowling partnership with the then teenager Amir before they were found guilty in a spot-fixing case. The right-arm pacer also expressed his disappointment at the current crop of Pakistani bowlers in Tests, saying that none of them "are suitable for the format or have delivered impressive performances".
