ICC World Cup 2019: Pakistan Sweating Over Mohammad Amir’s Fitness Ahead of Windies Clash
Suffering from poor fitness, Mohammad Amir is most likely not to feature in the team’s first ICC World Cup match 2019 against the Windies. The 27-year-old left-arm pacer has been facing illness ever since he arrived in England. He did not even play in the ODI series against England due to the chickenpox.
Earlier, though, there were rumours of him being fit to go in the opening clash of Pakistan.
However, as per reports, Amir is not entirely fit and has informed the coach Mickey Arthur about it. He asked for more time to rest before featuring in the rest of the tournament’s matches. The reports also claimed that the team management has decided not to let him play on Friday.
Pakistan will be heading to take over West Indies on Friday at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.
The left-arm pacer was initially unable to make a place for himself in the 15-man squad for the World Cup. But despite his poor performance in past few ODIs, he was eventually picked by the selectors.
In fact, it was the lacklustre performance of the bowlers in the ODI series against England bounded the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) selectors to go back to Amir.
