Test cricketer Kamran Akmal has come out in support of Mohammad Amir and asked Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to think beyond its ego after the player announced retirement from international cricket on Thursday.
Kamran Akmal said that,
Amir’s decision is not good for Pakistan cricket. He urged the team management to let go of its ego and make decisions for the betterment of national cricket.
“One has to wonder why Amir made this decision. What were the motives that forced him to go this way,” Akmal said.
He further added,
“Experiments have made the state of cricket worse in the country. Sami Aslam has left Pakistan for the United States. Let the season end, many more names will emerge”
Akmal supported Amir’s decision of retiring from Test cricket last year due to workload, saying the player was ‘unjustifiably targeted’ for his personal choice, and the statements given by the management targeting Amir was disappointing.
