- Mohammad Amir retired from all forms of international cricket on Thursday.
- Although he has quit international cricket, Mohammad Amir will be in action at the Abu Dhabi T10 League next month.
Pakistani speedster Mohammad Amir shocked the cricket universe by announcing his retirement from all forms of international cricket today. The southpaw explained he could not bear the ‘mental torture’ from the team management anymore.
However, former Pakistan cricket captain Inzamam-ul-Haq feels Mohammad Amir has not taken the right call. Inzamam suggested that Amir should have consulted the higher-ups instead of quitting.
Reacting to Mohammad Amir’s retirement, Inzamam said on his YouTube channel:
“I think Amir got too emotional, and people close to him should advise that people often regret taking hasty decisions during an emotional phase.”
He added that if Amir had issues with Waqar Younis, he should have had a word with head coach Misbah-ul-Haq or the Pakistan Cricket Board officials.
“If Amir was not comfortable with the team management or Waqar, he could have talked to Misbah, who is the head of team management at the moment. He could have also approached PCB if he didn’t get a response from Misbah,” Inzamam-ul-Haq continued.
Inzamam-ul-Haq believes Mohammad Amir should serve Pakistan cricket for more years
