Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur has revealed that Mohammad Amir himself is the most concerned about his lack of wickets in ODIs.
Since the Champions Trophy final in June 2017, Amir has taken five wickets in 14 ODIs at a dismal average of 92.60 and failed to complete his 10-over quota even once.
Amir was dropped for the second ODI against Australia in Sharjah on Sunday after he conceded 59 runs from his nine overs in the first match last Friday.
Given Amir’s struggles, Arthur acknowledged that the 26-year-old has a lot of work to do, especially with the World Cup starting in May.
“Yes, Amir’s form is a worry and nobody is more worried than Amir,” Arthur was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. “I still think he is an incredibly skilled bowler and has all the attributes to be successful. He has got a big match temperament and we will see how we use him going forward.”
