Muhammad Amir opens up after being dropped from NZ series squad.
Muhammad Musa, Muhammad Hansain and Naseem Shah have been preferred over him. Misbah ul Haq dropped Shoaib Malik, Asad Shafique and Muhammad Amir from squad that will face New Zealand next month in December.
The World Cup is just around the corner. Just few months back, Muhammad Amir was Pakistan’s first choice bowler in all formats but announcing his retirement from Test cricket hit him back which resulted in dropping him the squad without much of reason.
If we look at his T20I performance. He is still No.1 Pakistani bowler. Highest ranked Pakistani bowler in ODIs as he was ranked 7th best bowler before Zimbabwe series. Obviously he lost points after being missed out.
Few months back, he was unmatched to anyone but getting retirement from Test cricket has hurted his career. Now he is no way near to any PCB’s future plan.
Here’s how Muhammad Amir opens up after being dropped from NZ series squad
While replying to Pakistani sports journalist he told, only Misbah could tell how he has missed out from the squad.
Misbah saab hi bata sakte hain but good luck for team green?

At the end he also wished Pakistani team very good luck for New Zealand series. Since 2016 Muhammad Amir’s economy is best in the world, he doesn’t give away more than 6 runs per over. He is rated best T20I bowler for Pakistan at the present time but only Misbah ul Haq can reveal if he was dropped due to Test retirement or something else.
But here’s what Misbah ul Haq said after dropping Muhammad Amir, Shafique and Shoaib Malik
“We want to give a chance to new players as much as we can because they are going to represent Pakistan in all formats while Muhammad Amir, Shoaib Malik and Asad Shafique don’t play all formats,” said Misbah ul Haq.
