Finally, there seems to be some positivity in the Pakistan camp over the reintegration of pacer Mohammad Aamir into the side. After comments from T20I captain that Aamir deserved to be in the team now left arm pacer Wahab Riaz had spoken in support of the pace sensation. Riaz recently said that Aamir’s presence meant that the burden off his shoulders was lifted to a great extent and the responsibilities could be shared.

“Amir is a great introduction to the team,” Wahab said. “He’s getting a chance. He’s a great fast bowler – he’s proved that in the past. It’s time for him to prove here as well, again. And he will prove it. With him, there’s less pressure on me as a bowler because I’m getting his support. Umar Gul is back and is doing really well. It’s going to be a good combination for Pakistan,” Riaz said.

Riaz said that he was mightily impressed by the swing bowling of Aamir and the pacer could swing it both ways. “Amir is a good inswing bowler, bowling with the new ball,” Wahab said. “He can bowl outswing as well. If you can take wickets with the new ball the pressure will always be on the batsmen. That’s I’m saying that him coming into the team will help us more.”

Riaz also admitted that bowling to the Kiwi batsmen would be a daunting task as off late, they have simply plundered bowling attacks. “It seems like cricket is very easy these days for the New Zealand batsmen,” he said. “They’ve been hitting balls really well. It’s going to be a different challenge because we have much more good bowlers than Sri Lanka. They lacked experience, but we have experience and some quality bowlers as well. It’s not going to be easy for them to score runs against us. “We cannot sit back and see what they are doing. We will definitely attack, and let’s see. If they can play good cricket – hats off to them.”
