Mohammad Amir has been in the news for some time now due to his sudden retirement and criticism towards the team management. On Saturday, he got into another controversy, something which he could have avoided. Pakistan fans on Twitter were not happy because Amir gave his word on the recent Mohammad Hafeez and Sarfaraz Ahmed Twitter battle. 

Recently, after Mohammad Rizwan scored his maiden T20I century against South Africa earlier this week, Hafeez posted a tweet in praise of Rizwan. In that tweet, he said that Rizwan was the number one wicketkeeper in Pakistan and he doesn’t know how much he has to prove himself anymore. 

Sarfaraz Ahmed decided to reply to this tweet by saying that whoever has ever played for Pakistan as the wicketkeeper has been number one. He referred to several legendary keepers who have played for Pakistan, “Hafeez bhai Sb, whoever has played for Pakistan from Imtiaz Ahmed, Wasim Bari, Tasleem Arif to Saleem Yousuf and from Moin Khan, Rashid Latif to Kamran Akmal and even Rizwan right now has always been number ONE for the country and have been respected accordingly.”

Pakistan fans express their frustration towards Mohammad Amir

After this, Mohammad Amir got into it by praising Sarfaraz Ahmed for his wicketkeeping skills. “babu u also a number 1 wicketkeeper  batsman in Pakistan  or ap ki hi captain the jab team 2 saal team no 1 rhi in t20 or sab se bar kar champions  trophy so u are pride of Pakistan  big respect  or maze ki bat logon kam hai awein ka bolna so enjoy bro,” Amir tweeted showing support for Sarfaraz. 

After Amir’s tweet, fans started questioning his intentions. They said that Amir pokes his nose even where it is not required. Some people questioned what was the need for the pacer to get into this and express a few words on this matter. One of the fans even said that the Pakistan team needs to do what England have done with Alex Hales. Mohammad Amir had said in several public interactions that he won’t return to the Pakistan team until the current team management is changed.
