Mohammad Amir has told fellow left-arm fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi to block out the attention seekers.
He added that Afridi is the “one of the finest bowlers and the best Pakistan has currently”.
Afridi, who is capable of hitting speeds of around 150 kph (94 mph) took two wickets in the recent three-match ODI series against England at an average of 68.50.
However, the 21-year-old bounced back to claim four wickets in the three-match T20 series at an average of 18.50.
