Here’s What Mohammad Amir is Planning For the Upcoming Lord’s Test Match

The Pakistan bowling attack spearhead, Mohammed Amir, is again hoping to etch his name at the historic Lord’s honor board when Pakistan meet England later this month.

The left-arm pacer spoke to a media outlet the day after Pakistan registered their win against Ireland and spoke at length regarding the two-Test match series against England.

He said:

Our team this time is very young but they are very keen to play at Lords and are very excited. Everyone wants to get their name on the honour board and I am also looking for it the second time.

Muhammad Amir registered his name on the board in 2010 after picking up 6 wickets for just 86 runs

Other Pakistanis who are mentioned on the board include Mudassir Nazar, Waqar Younis and Mushtaq Ahmed.

Speaking about his return after a lengthy ban of 5-years, Amir said that the lack of practice during his ban has impacted his game a lot. He said that his lack of swing is primarily because of the same reason.

The one main reason because I am coming back after five years and since then cricket has changed completely as it is much faster and… the wickets are little bit flat now, as well.

In the five years period, I didn’t do training no bowling, so it is difficult. But I am still trying to swing the ball, because when you are swinging the ball you will get wickets.

During the interview, Amir gave a special shoutout to Shahid Afridi, Misbah-ul-Haq and current skipper Sarfraz Ahmed for their continuous support throughout his rough patch. He said that these three senior players have helped him the most since his return.

    Surely Mohammad Amir already has his name of the Lord’s Board – The Dishonour Board for Match Fixing. After what he has done to Pakistan Cricket Reputation, it is disgusting to see him in Pakistan colours. It just shows how corrupt to the core PCB is that they had to take him back simply because he knows too much.

      He spent 5 years away from the game, which was the punishment for his crime. We need to calm to when criticizing our own players. Not long ago Australian captain Steve Smith was caught in the most blatant cheating case of ball tampering yet somehow people overlook that because of the reputation of the country and support from media and fans. Until or unless these double standards exist in cricket – we can’t move forward.

        I was not criticising a player but a convicted criminal. The reason you can give a long list of such convicts, around the world, is because non have been made an example of. Crime is eradicated by punishing and making an example of criminals. Not by putting their names on Honour Board.

          Totally agree, they would have allowed salman butt as well, but this attitude of bowing down in front of personal choices is not new in PCB, you can quote steve smith but why didnt you quote Danish Kaneria who is not been able to play any single game even when non of the charges against him not proved,, was he not among the best bowlers?? or did you have other reasons like you didnt like him in the first place????
