MANCHESTER: Pakistan pace spearhead Mohammad Amir has called for peace among the cricketing fans, urging his team’s supporters to restrain from using ‘bad words’ against the national side, which has been on the receiving end after their defeat to arch-rivals India at the World Cup encounter on Sunday.
“Please don’t use bad words for the players. Yes you guys can criticise our performance, we will bounce back InshAllah. We need your support,” wrote Amir on his Twitter account.
Despite being inducted into the Pakistan World Cup squad at the last moment, Amir has emerged as the sole performer for his side in the ongoing tournament. The speedster has picked 13 wickets in the tournament so far, including his maiden limited overs five wicket haul, which came against Australia.
The fast bowler also bowled exceptionally well against India, picking up three wickets for 47 runs, however, the bowling spearhead continued to lack support from the other end allowing India to post 336 runs on the board at Old Trafford clash.
With World Cup chances looking grim and exit looking eminent, the Men in Green would next face South Africa on 23 June Sunday at Lords.
Pls dont use bad words for the players yes u guys can criticise our performance we will bounce back InshAllah we need ur support 🙏🙏🙏
