Pakistan captain Babar Azam picked left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir as his game-changing bowler.

Amir was once considered a prodigy and lived up to the hype as he took plenty of wickets by making the ball swing.

However, his career was stopped in its tracks when he was banned for five years for his involvement in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal.

He eventually returned to the Pakistan team, but retired from international cricket in December 2020.

He has featured in domestic tournaments and overseas T20 leagues since then, but missed the recent edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he was supposed to represent the Karachi Kings, with an injury.

Azam captains the Kings and having played with Amir, he knows how good the 29-year-old can be.

“Amir is my game-changing bowler,” he was quoted as saying by A-Sports.

Azam is currently captaining Pakistan in the Test series against Australia, which still stands at 0-0 heading into the third Test.

Once the Test series concludes, the two sides will play three ODIs and a one-off T20 International.
