At the age of 27, when most of the pacers attain the peak of their career, Pakistani quick Mohammad Amir decided to bid farewell to the purest format of the game. The reason, he brought forward, for this move was that his body wasn’t able to support him playing the red-ball cricket.
Recently, his former teammate Mohammad Asif reflected on this subject as he believes that it wasn’t a wise decision by the left-arm paceman to leave Test cricket and that too when Pakistan needed him. The 37-year old added that he never approved the way Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) revived the career of Amir, but the skillful quick should have helped Pakistan in a tough situation.
Moreover, Asif believes that it comes across as a curse for all those who worked hard to bring him back to the national team. It is important to note that Amir represented Pakistan in 36 Tests in which the 28-year old cricketer picked 119 wickets at an average of 30.47.
