Left-arm fast bowler Mohammad Amir has vowed to give his 100 per cent after he was selected in Pakistan’s final 15-member squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup.
Mohammad Amir replaces Junaid Khan despite not being able to play in Pakistan’s ODI series against England due to chickenpox. He had been left out of the initial World Cup squad due to bad form. Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said Amir had been included due to his experience. “He [Mohammad Amir] has vast experience of playing in England. He also has a good economy rate in England,” said Haq.
“Allhamdulilah, humbled and proud to be part of the Pakistan WC squad InshAllah going to give 100% and we all will try and make our nation proud, thank u all for ur support and endless duas we all need them more now. #PakistanZindabad,” Mohammad Amir tweeted after the squad announcement.
Pakistan will be looking towards Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz who replaced Faheem Ashraf to guide Pakistan's bowling lineup which includes Hassan Ali, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mohammad Hasnain.
