Mohammad Amir urges Pakistan openers to upgrade their powerplay game:
Recently, the pacer of Pakistan Mohammad Amir was engaged in a conversation with ICA Sports.
Talking in a show, Amir said that Pakistan’s openers Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan need to step up during the powerplay.
The left-arm pacer opined that both of the batters have capability to upgrade their strike rates in the first six overs.
Further, Amir was gleeful on the comeback of Fakhar Zaman and revealed his wish of seeing him as an opener. However, the former pacer agreed that it’s not the right time to shift the opening pair, so he preferred Fakhar at 3.
When asked whether Pakistan should go with three or four pacers, Amir said that since Pakistan is lacking in batting performance they might go with extra batting option rather than strengthening their already potent bowling unit.
Talking about the Pakistan lineup in the T20 World Cup, Amir made room for Fakhar in place of Shan Masood and picked Mohammad Wasim Jnr as the third pacer. Keeping the rest of the lineup the same as it was during the Tri-series.
On power hitting or a finisher role, Amir stated that Asif Ali is still the best available option Pakistan have.
