The bowling coach Waqar Younis has set a ‘specific condition’ on the comeback of Mohammad Amir in Pakistan Cricket Team.

Amir is making an entry to the Pakistan squad which is in England for three Tests and three T20 Internationals.

The inclusion of Mohammad Amir in the Pakistan Cricket Team’s squad was subjected to two negative COVID-19 tests. Both Corona tests of Amir came negative and he will join men in green soon for the international cricket assignment against England.

From dismissing the top scorer of the tournament Tillakaratne Dilshan in the World T20 2009 final at Lord’s to finding the glory of shattering the star-studded top order of India in the Champions Trophy 2017 Final and ultimately becoming the leading wicket-taker of Pakistan in Cricket World Cup 2019, Mohammad Amir’s journey in England has been a fantastic and an enthralling ride.

Bowling Coach Waqar Younis shared his opinion on Mohammad Amir’s call-up

The bowling coach of Pakistan Cricket Team, Waqar Younis, shared his thoughts on the addition of left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir to the side.

According to Waqar, the selection of Mohammad Amir is “actually good” because he could mentor the emerging bowling talent in the team.

“In a way it’s actually good that he came and young players can actually learn from him,” told Former Pakistan Captain Waqar Younis.

However, Waqar has put a specific condition on the inclusion of Mohammad Amir in the playing eleven. He has openly shared his plans of selecting Amir only “if he’s up to the mark”, meaning Amir could only play the matches against England if he really proves out to be the deserving candidate for the spot.

Waqar has made it clear that no player is an automatic choice in the team. “Nobody is indispensable,” he said.

Former Test cricketer assumes that the mindset of depending on just a single player is not sane.

“I never thought we couldn’t function without one cricketer. That’s the wrong way to think,” Waqar Younis expressed his opinion.
