ISLAMABAD: The Sultan of Swing, Wasim Akram has coined Mohammad Amir as the ‘future of Pakistan cricket’ and has praised the young left-arm bowler.
Wasim Akram, who recently turned 50 years, was talking to a private news channel where he said, “Amir is a brilliant bowler and the future of cricket in the country.”
“I told Amir to focus on only one thing; cricket. Leave everything else,” the Pakistani bowling maestro revealed his advice that he gave to Amir.
The 24-year old left-arm pace sensation made a successful comeback in the international cricket against New Zealand after serving his five years ban that was slapped by the ICC for being involved in spot fixing.
Mohammad Amir wore the star on his chest during the Asia Cup in Bangladesh and the World T20 in India, he was the only decent performer for Pakistan during the disastrous campaigns.
The Pakistan Cricket Board is waiting for Amir’s UK visa that has some complications, if he is granted the visa, Muhammad Amir will make his test cricket comeback at the same venue of Lord’s where he deliberately bowled the expansive no-balls.
