Pakistan left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir has said that he wasn’t dropped due to poor performances, and added that head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis are lying.
Amir’s comments come after he retired from international cricket last month.
Amir alleged that he was being “mentally tortured” by the PCB and felt that the current team management had deliberately been snubbing him for selection.
Waqar recently said “I was one of those individuals that was in favour of Mohammad Amir’s comeback into the side”. However, Amir claimed that what Misbah and Waqar tell the media “is different from the actual facts”.
“I was not dropped from the side because of my performance. What they [Misbah and Waqar] say [to the] media is different from the actual facts,” Amir was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
