Mohammad Amir has backed fellow fast bowler Ihsanullah to be a “good prospect for Pakistan”.
His comments come after the 20-year-old dominated with the ball in the 2023 Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he took 22 wickets in 12 matches for the Multan Sultans at an average of 15.77 and an economy rate of 7.59.
The Matta native went on to play for Pakistan after PSL 8, featuring in the team’s limited overs series against Afghanistan and New Zealand.
He took six wickets in four T20Is at an average of 18 and an economy rate of 7.28.
