Former fast bowler Wasim Akram believes Mohammed Amir should be included in Pakistan’s squad for this year’s T20 World Cup. According to Wasim, Amir’s experience has been very useful for Pakistan and his stay has been very helpful for young fast bowlers. Amir announced his retirement from international cricket in December 2020, accusing the PCB of insulting him.

Speaking to TV Channel, Wasim Akram said, “I am quite surprised because I am an experienced bowler and one of the best bowlers in the world of T20 cricket.” Personally, I think they should be in Pakistan’s T20 World Cup squad. At the World Cup, you need experienced bowlers who can advise and guide young bowlers. We still need a number of influential players in the T20 squad who will only be able to perform well if they can play without fear of failure.

Notably, Amir announced his retirement in December last year. He was accused by some of the coaching staff of the team of not wanting to continue playing. Aamir said he was not getting proper respect from the team management. He told me the decision to retire was very difficult, but I had no choice. Amir has played 36 Tests, 61 ODIs and 50 T20s for Pakistan. The last time Amir played an international match was in 2019.
