Fast bowler Mohammad Amir has seemed to react on Twitter against chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq after being disregarded for the upcoming tour of New Zealand.
Amir was one of the three prominent absentees after a 35-man squad was named for the tour, with the clarification given was that younger options were favored over him, even though Amir is just 28.
Upon being marked in a tweet interrogative how he could have been dropped when the World Cup was just around the corner
Amir said that “only Misbah saab could answer that query” before wishing the team best of luck.
The use of the word “saab” in its place of the more usual title of “coach” or “selector” as well as the general tone indirect that Amir was unhappy with the call and wanted to register his protest without making it too obvious like he thinks it was un fair with him because he was not selected for this tour.
In a distinct tweet, he said that he has “faith only in Allah but none in the people”.
It is relevant to mention here that Amir was extensively criticized last year when he brusquely retired from Test cricket at a time when the team had a difficult away tour of Australia coming up and wanted his experience.
