The Pakistani fast-bowler Mohammad Amir is all set to join the Pakistan Team in England as he has tested negative for the Covid-19. On the request of the team management, the PCB decided to send Amir to England following the birth of his second daughter last week.
As part of the process Amir underwent his first Covid-19 tests on Monday. He requires two negative tests to be eligible to travel to the United Kingdom. Now his second tests will be conducted on Wednesday, with their expected departures over the weekend.
According to sources, the PCB has already started making their travel arrangements and has given the go-ahead to Amir to start packing for the tour.
Pakistan’s fast-bowler Mohammad Amir, in an interview with former cricketer Atiquz Zaman, has claimed that it was a mistake to participate in all three formats of the sport after making his comeback.
The 28-year-old, who could not play cricket during a five-year ban for spot-fixing, expressed hope of playing cricket for another six years. The pacer advised future cricketers to not make the same mistake as him and pick one or two formats to check their limits.
“I made a big mistake by playing all three formats after making a comeback in the national side.I would like to advice future cricketers to not make the same mistake. Everyone should check their limits and get into a good rhythm by first playing in one or two formats. If they believe that they can, only then should they participate in a third format,” Amir said.
The left-armer believed that pacers needed to be more careful because a wrong decision could seriously hamper their career.
“Pacers need to be more careful. I had problems two years later after making the wrong decision to come back in all formats. I was hit with injuries in 2018. I have restricted myself to white-ball cricket alone due to this reason. I am hopeful that I can extend my career by about five to six years,” he said.
The 28-year-old has represented his country in 36 Tests, 61 One-day Internationals (ODIs) and 48 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) while picking up 119 wickets, 81 wickets and 59 wickets in each format of the sport respectively.
