Pakistan left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir said he would love to be coached by Mickey Arthur “anywhere in the world”.
Arthur was Pakistan’s head coach from 2016 until the conclusion of the 2019 World Cup, where he was let go.
Misbah-ul-Haq ended up succeeding Arthur as head coach of the Pakistan team.
Amir’s comments come after Arthur said the veteran bowler always “rises to the big occasion” and can change the match in a heartbeat.
“Mohammad Amir’s class comes to the fore. He is a man who rises to the big occasion, just like he did in the 2017 Champions Trophy final,” Arthur, who now coaches Sri Lanka, had said.

Thanking Arthur for his kind words, Amir said: “Thanks Mickey Arthur and I would love to play under your coaching anywhere in the world.”
Amir is currently representing the Galle Gladiators in the Lanka Premier League (LPL), where he is the joint fourth-highest wicket-taker with 10 wickets in nine matches at an average of 25.80 and an economy rate of 7.58.
