Former India seamer Irfan Pathan believes that Pakistan left-arm pace bowler Mohammad Amir is bowling as well as ever.
Pathan’s comments come after Amir announced his retirement from international cricket on Thursday.
Pathan noted that he faced Amir during the recently-concluded Lanka Premier League (LPL).
Amir took 11 wickets in 10 matches for the Galle Gladiators, who lost in the final to the Jaffna Stallions, at an average of 26.72 and an economy rate of 7.73.
Given how well the 28-year-old bowled, Pathan feels that Amir still has “lots of cricket left in him”.
