There is no denying the fact that Pakistan has always been the best producers of fast bowlers in international cricket. One of them has been Mohammad Amir, who caught the eyeballs with his exceptional display of fast bowling at a tender age. However, it isn’t the case now, as Amir has failed to produce similar results for Pakistan across the formats upon his return. Meanwhile, the head coach Mickey Arthur speaks on the same.

Following the poor performance in the Asia Cup 2018, Pakistan left Mohammad Amir for the bilateral series and asked him to get into the zone by playing in the domestic cricket. As ordered, Amir is taking the field for his domestic side on a regular basis.

Mohammad Amir has a big future – Mickey Arthur

The head coach quoted Pakistan are sending their comments to Amir on a regular basis whenever they are receiving the video of him bowling in the domestic cricket. Furthermore, Mickey wants Amir to get back his swing with the new ball and bag wickets at the domestic level to get into the selection radar.

Further, he also added Amir would be back on the side sooner than later. But, all he wants is to see the hunger and desire of him to perform for Pakistan, which has been the case a few months back.

”We are monitoring Amir progress. Every time he bowls, we look at the videos and send our comments back to him. Let¿s be clear about the fact that Amir is a quality bowler, he has a big-match temperament and I am hoping that we can have him back in the fold, sooner rather than later, provided he gives us the ammunition to pick him,” Arthur said.

“There are runs for batsmen which is the criteria for selection and similarly, it is wickets for bowlers which are important. If we can get Amir swinging the ball again, getting through his action and be very comfortable with the hunger and desire to win games for Pakistan, then Amir has a big future with the side,” he added.

Well, it seems like Pakistan has kept Mohammad Amir pretty much in the scheme of things for the upcoming grand event. All he needs is a couple of fine performances in the domestic cricket to get back into the fold.
