Mohammad Amir delighted to be Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur’s idol: Mohammad Amir, the Pakistani pacer who terrorized batsmen at a young age of 17 was expected to be the next big thing in international cricket. Unfortunately spot fixing scandals ruined his career as he faced a 5 year ban. Amir is all set to return to action as the ban comes to an end in September.
He is also elated that he has been an inspiration to the Bangladeshi youngster Mustafizur. Amir believes that the youngster has the weapons in his arsenal to become an exceptional bowler. As he said “I felt so good to hear what Mustafizur had to say and I must say he is set for a great career because he is not an easy bowler to reckon with. He has all the weapons and he appears to have good cricketing sense,”
Mustafizur Rehman has decimated the Indian batsmen by his consecutive match winning performances. He has revealed that he idolizes the Pakistani quick Muhammad Amir as he said, “Muhammad Amir is my idol. I just follow the bowling of Amir. His spot-fixing allegations don’t bother me.”
Their wins against Pakistan and India have proved that Bangladesh have improved leaps and bounds to become a more competent side. Their efforts have them at 7th position in the ODI rankings above West Indies and Pakistan.
“They appear to have developed more self belief and confidence and they have good youngsters coming up. Rehman has added lot of spike to their bowling.” He added.
Amir is well aware of current situation and has been training hard to get back to his best. Pakistan has not been in best of forms and Amir might be the one to get them out of their slump. He is excited on making his comeback to professional cricket after 5 long years as he said
“As I get closer to finally seeing my ban end I am preparing hard for a possible comeback to international cricket. The competition has increased in top level since I last played in 2010, so one has to work harder. With cricket, especially ODIs and T20 cricket having undergone changes, obviously I know I have to comeback a much improved bowler in domestic cricket for a start,”
