Muhammad Amir blames Mickey Arthur for his retirement
Mohammad Amir was once considered the future and saviour of Pakistan in pace bowling. But the young pacer abruptly announced his retirement from Test cricket last year. Muhammad Amir blames former coach Mickey Arthur for his retirement. He himself said that the then team management under former coach Arthur could not ‘use him properly’.
This is one of the reasons behind Aamir’s retirement from Test cricket in 2019. He also mentioned that he was exhausted and was ‘finished’ both physically and mentally. The 26-year-old Aamir was well aware that he would have to give up a format to prolong his career in international cricket.
“I told Arthur and the team management about my condition, you can’t use me properly so I will retire from one format,” Aamir told Pakistan’s legendary spinner Mushtaq Ahmed on YouTube channel Pak Passion. In response, Arthur said, “The World Cup has come and we will talk about it later.”
He added: ‘What happened next was that I was exhausted and physically and mentally exhausted. As a result, I could not perform well in the Asia Cup. As a result, I was dropped from the Test series against Australia. But before that, I was the team’s top wicket-taker in the Test series against England and Ireland. I couldn’t perform like a white ball, which is why they dropped me from the red ball team. ‘
Pakistan is currently on a tour of England. He is now looking forward to joining the Pakistan team in England as the latest Corona test had a negative result. Pakistan will play a three-match Test series and an equal number of T20 matches in England. Pakistan will start the Test with a match starting on August 5 in Manchester. Then the T20 series will start on August 28 at the same venue.
