Pakistan have lost in the recently concluded five-match ODI series to England by 4-0 against England. After scoring more than 300 in three games they had lost due to lack of bowling attack and fielding as well. To keep the upcoming ICC World Cup in mind, Pakistan has named Mohammad Amir in their 15-member squad. The chief selector, Inzamam-ul-Haq has recently announced the squad where Amir’s inclusion came as a surprise to everyone. However, he was not included in the provisional squad which was announced last month. Though, he got another chance during the England series but fell ill after the first ODI and failed to recover as he was down with the suspected chicken pox.
However, looking at the inexperienced bowling attack of Pakistan, Amir has given another chance in the World Cup. Excited with the selection in the World Cup squad, the27-year-old shared his happiness on social media.
“Allhamdulilah, humbled and proud to be part of the Pakistan WC squad InshAllah going to give 100% and we all will try and make our nation proud, thank u all for ur support and endless duas we all need them more now. #pakistanZindabad,” he took to Twitter and shared this.
However, Mohammad Amir has recovered from the illness now and he is expected to join his teammates in Bristol on May 22. Pakistan will play two warm-up games against Afghanistan and Bangladesh. For the pacer, these two matches will be important for him.
Along with Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz and Asif Ali have also been named in the final squad. It will be interesting to see how they would perform in the mega event.
