Sarfraz Ahmed: We Can Only Pray For Mohammad Amir’s Form

Pakistan cricket team captain Sarfraz Ahmed has expressed his concern over Mohammad Amir’s deteriorating form ahead of the crucial ICC World Cup 2019.

The tournament is scheduled to commence from 30th May and Pakistan are yet to announce the squad for the mega-event.

Mohammad Amir, who was once an automatic pick in the squad, has been disappointing in recent past. The left-arm bowler has picked up only 14 wickets since the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017.

In the recent series against Australia, he failed to pick up a wicket from his 9 overs and was dispatched for 59 runs in the first ODI. He was then dropped for the remainder of the series.

In an interview with a local media outlet, here’s what Sarfraz Ahmed had to say on the matter:

Pakistan has a lot of depth in the bowling department, which makes Mohammad Amir’s selection chances very thin.

Junaid Khan, Usman Shinwari and Mohammad Hasnain are all hoping to be paired up with Hasan Ali for the World Cup.


  • I hope he gets dropped for his own good. He has time and the skills to overcome this lean patch. Although, his attitude needs to improve a lot if he wants to perform in the long run.

  • Don’t forget a dead elephant worths 1.25 lacs.!!!

    Before champions trophy final he was not as good as he used to be…. But what he did in the final we all know….

  • Not only Amir pray for whole team
    Recently you had two 5-0 defeats.
    No more results like that otherwise stop playing cricket.

  • M.Amir should go for the world cup 2019..he is very capable or a game changer bowler and more oftenly england conditions suits him.he should go for the world.cup

  • Dont judge his abilities on the basis of his last few performances. He is a very capable bowler and no doubt a game changer. He will surely perform in the upcoming world cup INSHALLAH.

  • Muhammad Amir is a key baller of Pakistani team. Unfortunately he is not permforming well according to his worth or energy but it’s not mean that PCB will drope him for ICC world cup 2019. Balling couches should improve his pace and swing. Amir is a match changer and energatic baller and in every crucial match M. Amir perform very well. PCB should include Junaid Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Hassan Ali with M. Amir. Junaid, Amir and Shaheen are attacking ballers and experienced in using a new ball.
