Pakistan all-rounder Imad Wasim isn’t angry with left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir over his decision to retire from Test cricket, and in fact supports the move.
Amir, 27, has received a lot of criticism, especially from former players, over his announcement to walk away from the longest format in order to focus on limited overs cricket.
However, Imad feels that Amir will benefit from his decision as he will be able to represent Pakistan for a longer period of time.
“In my view, Mohammad Amir’s decision to retire from Test cricket is a good one,” Imad told The Cricket Paper as quoted by PakPassion. “There is a lot of white-ball cricket being played around the world and if Amir can play longer in white-ball formats, then he will also serve Pakistan for a longer time.
“This would be a better choice for Amir and Pakistan than him just playing a couple of seasons which include Tests and then retiring from the game early due to injuries.”
