Former Pakistan player Mohammad Amir pledged to support Pakistan women team’s player Nida Dar after the latter was robbed of a felicitation amount.
According to Pakistan journalist Shoaib Jatt, Nida was supposed to get a cheque of 5 lakh rupees in a ceremony but the organisers left the venue without handing the amount to the player, who hails from Gujranwala in Punjab.
Jatt also said that Nida’s father was going under a treatment and her brother as well is in a critical condition.
“Become Nida’s voice. Alas, the ceremony was called to decorate the national cricketer “Nida Dar”. Nida’s father is undergoing treatment at the hospital due to a contagious disease, while his brother is alone in bed due to an accident. 5 lakhs not found yet,” Shoaib Jatt tweeted.
I will try to best help Nida Dar’s family: Mohammad Amir
Responding to Shoaib Jatt’s tweet, the Rawalpindi pace bowler asked the journalist to provide him with the details of the female player and he will support her family in his own capacity.
“@Shoaib_Jatt u can send me her details I will try my best to help her family,” Amir responded.
Amir retired from international cricket in December 2020 citing differential treatment faced by the team management.
The 29-year-old bowler openly criticised then head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis for mentally torturing him.
