Meanwhile, Mohammad Amir has recently come into the limelight after having a spat with the veteran India spinner Harbhajan Singh after Pakistan’s 10-wicket win over India in the Super 12 stage of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 as well. And, Singh later slammed the pace bowler too.

“Who is Amir I want to know, what credentials does he have? He is someone who betrayed his own country and fixed the game in Lord’s. He’s been talking too much about the India-Pakistan match and I gave him a befitting reply. Me and Shoaib Akhtar had our banter and he jumped in. He’s a disgrace, someone who didn’t play this game fairly. I don’t want to talk to people like this. I also urge the Pakistan Prime Minister to open schools for them where they can learn how to conduct themselves and how to behave when elders are talking. These guys have no sense or class. He’s no one,” Harbhajan had told India Today.
