Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja has revealed that the country’s Prime Minister Imran Khan told left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir to “bowl more in order to get bowling fit”.
Ramiz revealed that Imran gave Amir this advice upon learning that the 27-year-old was not included in Pakistan’s initial World Cup squad.
“During that meeting [Imran] shifted his attention towards Mohammad Amir, the PM asked Amir, who at that time was not selected into the World Cup squad, why he didn’t made into Pakistan’s World Cup squad, to which the fast bowler replied that there was a bit of problem [with] his in-swing and wrist position, and also he was fatigued.
“Surprised over Amir’s answer, Imran advised the fast bowler to bowl more in order to get bowling fit.”
