Mohammad Amir was one of the main pacers in the Pakistan cricket team who ever played the game. He impressed everyone with his sheer pace and amazing bowling skills since his debut for the national cricket team and emerged as a promising star in a very short time for the men in green.
The 30-year-old made his first appearance for Pakistan at the highest level of the game 13 years back in the 20-20 World Cup 2009. He was only a 17-year-old teenager at that time. The Punjabi lad gradually cemented his place in the national team with his consistency and back-t0-back impressive performances.
Things went south for Mohammad Amir in his career when he was banned from the international after he was found involved in a spot-fixing. It all happened during the infamous Lord’s Test between England and Pakistan in September 2010. He played a few matches after his ban was revoked but couldn’t make it permanent since then.
Recently, the Pakistan Cricket Board denied a NOC to Amir for playing Abu Dhabi T10 League. Following this, the 2009 20-20 World Cup winner bowler has reacted to the decision of the board.
“I am surprised that I am being treated like this,” replied Amir to a question on PCB’s denial of NOC to him.
The cricket fans have also reacted to the same following the left-arm pacer’s disappointment over Board’s stand towards him. Fans took to Twitter to come up with divided opinions over the entire ongoing scenario in Pakistan cricket. ‘
Here’s how fans reacted:
Leave Pakistan & Change ur Nationality Amir.
These Boards controlling players in every country are the worst including BCCI
