Abdul Razzaq opens up on Mohammad Amir’s retirement

The former cricketer Abdul Razzaq has opened on Mohammad Amir’s retirement and says the retired pacer was ‘extremely talented’. Elaborating further, Razzaq noted that he saw glimpses of Wasim Akram’s bowling style in Amir.

Razzaq believes that the pacer should not have quit Test cricket to focus on the limited-overs format as such players never become great cricketers.

Notably, Amir took retirement from Test cricket in 2019 and Wahab Riaz to focus on the short format of cricket. The player was criticized as people said that he prefers money over Pakistan. 

However, Amir has shocked the cricketing fraternity taking an indefinite retirement from cricket until Misbah-Waqar rules the current PCB management. Amir finds it hard to cope with the existing PCB management and is not ready to represent Pakistan.

“He [Amir] is an extremely talented bowler, and you could see glimpses of Wasim Akram in him,” Razzaq was quoted as saying. “It would have been great for Pakistan if he had consistently played and performed for Pakistan.”

“Players who give priority to T20s over Test cricket will never go on to become great players,” he said.

Amir said that he is mentally tortured and should not be considered for the squads under Waqar Younis.

His recent statements conclude that Misbah ul Haq and Waqar Younis are useful as players but need another kind of personality as the coaches.

Amir believes that good players do not always make good coaches for any board. On the other hand, Misbah urged that he is ready to welcome Amir again if he agrees to play for Pakistan and shows performances.
