It has been six years since Pakistan last won an ICC trophy when they beat India in the 2017 Champions Trophy. The closest the Men in Green came recently was when they lost the 2022 T20 World Cup final against England.
The Babar Azam-led side would have won the finals had Shaheen Afridi not got injured at the wrong time. Notably, the star seamer struggled to play for Pakistan during the second half of 2022 because of a knee injury.
Meanwhile, in the latest development, former Pakistani quick Mohammad Amir criticised the Pakistani management for not looking after players’ well-being and took a sly dig at Shaheen Afridi for continuing despite the injury.
Amir stated that there are rotation policies in place, which were not there during his time.
“There was no rotation policy back in the day. It has been implemented now because players are getting injured. In the 2022 World Cup, few players played despite injuries. It is the management and players’ job to take these factors seriously. Their focus be to serve the country first.”
Further, Amir called for the PCB to look at implementing the rotation policy strictly, as it will reduce the risk of injuries and ensure players remain in top spirits for important games.
Earlier, he mocked Babar Azam by comparing him with tailenders. Amir had also slammed the current Pakistan captain for his decisions in the past.
