Dunya News – “Amir is fully fit and available for selection for tomorrow’s game,” Pakistan captain said.
- NOTTINGHAM (AFP) – Pace spearhead Mohammad Amir is fit and available for selection for Pakistan’s opening World Cup match against the West Indies on Friday, captain Sarfaraz Ahmed said.
- There was speculation that the 27-year-old, who missed the last four matches of the one-day international series against England earlier this month, might not be able to make his World Cup debut at Trent Bridge.
- Amir, who missed the 2011 and 2015 World Cups due to a five-year ban for spot-fixing, was seen bowling using his full run-up in the team’s practice session.
- We will have different pitches in the World Cup so if a team scores 300-plus then the other team will also go for that,” he said.
- Sarfaraz said both Pakistan and the West Indies were unpredictable teams.
