Despite playing less than 150 International games for Pakistan, pacer Mohammad Amir remains to be one of the most celebrated cricketers of the country. However, the retirement of the senior pacer from Test cricket raised many eyebrows. From analysts to fans, the majority was frustrated to see the left-arm bidding farewell to the purest format of the game at the age of 27.
Recently, Amir spoke about the reason for leaving the red-ball cricket. He revealed that he wants to play the other two formats for 6 more years for the boys in green. For this to happen, he had to call it a day in the longest format as his body wasn’t supporting the workload.
Not only that, but Amir also highlighted that his fitness trainer recommended him to quit playing Tests so the pressure on his body could be reduced. The veteran of 36 Tests, 61 ODIs and 48 T20Is also added that he played the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament while carrying a persistent pain in his shoulder.
