Pakistan’s test skipper, Misbah Ul Haq, still believes that Mohammad Amir can become the best fast bowler of the world despite of staying away from cricket for a long span of five years due to the ban imposed by the ICC.
The left-arm pace sensation is all set to return to test cricket at the same venue of Lord’s, where he along with his new ball bowling partner Mohammad Asif, deliberately bowled those two expansive no-balls and were caught through a sting operation.
Misbah Ul Haq has complete faith on his young pacer and believes that he is one of the hottest properties of world cricket at the moment.
Amir has stayed away from competitive cricket for a long time, but, he has still got that flair. Misbah told on Monday “The way he has been bowling, he is there.”
The skipper further added, “You look at his bowling speed, his swing, his control, they’re all there. He can still be the best bowler in the world.”
Misbah praised Amir saying, “Whatever form of the game he has played since his comeback, he has done well,” he added, “He knows he is under pressure but he is handling it well.”
The 42-year old coined England tour a huge opportunity for Mohammad Amir, “This is a good chance for him to come here, the place where he had those problems, and show the world he is there to perform and deliver for the team. It is a chance to win back all his fans. It’s a great opportunity and he is working hard.”
The response of English crowd will be uncertain, Misbah advised Amir to just remain focus on his game, “Anything might happen but Amir’s main focus should be on his game. “It might happen –- you can always hear voices.”
“ The best way is to concentrate on your skills and your duties and Amir has to focus on his game and what he has to do. He is doing well,” concluded Misbah.
