Pakistan Cricket Board looking to mend ties between Amir, coaches

Pakistan Cricket Board CEO Wasim Khan has affirmed that the management will try to bury the hatchets between Mohammad Amir and team coaches.

Speaking to Cricket Baaz on YouTube, Wasim revealed that he met the left-arm pacer in the UK to discuss the bowler’s reservations from head coach Misbah ul Haque and Waqar Younis.

Amir, 29, made himself unavailable for the international side in 2020, citing alleged ill behaviour of the coaching duo.

He said that he will don the green jersey once again once the contracts of the current management members conclude. He was critical of the bowling coach in particular, who he claimed framed propaganda against him in media by misrepresenting his decision to retire from Test cricket.

On Saturday, the PCB head said that in his meeting with Amir he told the cricketer that the method he adopted was incorrect as a senior player.

“I think Amir is a valuable player for us even now and we will now make efforts to bring about a rapprochement between him and the coaches,” Wasim added.

A day ago, Pakistan captain Babar Azam also speak to Muhammad Amir about his complaints as he admitted that the 29-year-old is one of the finest pacers in the world.
