Mohammad Amir breaks silence on throwing ball towards Babar Azam in PSL Match

The Pakistan Super League was anticipated to be electrified by this match-up. Instead, Mohammad Amir and Babar Azam’s argument is creating all the wrong buzz. In a match between Babar’s Peshawar Zalmi and Amir’s Karachi Kings, the Pakistani captain hit the latter for a four on the last ball of the game’s sixth over.

The left-arm pacer then followed that with a dot delivery, collecting the ball on the follow through. Amir quickly expressed his fury by hurling the ball in Babar’s direction after becoming frustrated.

Babar scored 68 runs off of 46 balls while Amir had statistics of 0 for 42 in four overs. The fast bowler has now opened up on the incident.

“It was a spur of the moment decision, and [against Babar] it wasn’t personal. To maximise their effectiveness, bowlers should be aggressive on the field, according to Amir, who was quoted by Cricket Pakistan on Thursday. “The beauty of this league is that I was under pressure during the game. It aids in your recovery.

Shoaib Malik, a former captain of Pakistan, shared his perspective on the situation. While acknowledging that players may use conflict or any other motivating factor to perform better during matches, Malik, who plays for the same PSL squad as Amir, emphasised that they should respect one another.

“Respect should always be present. Every time Amir, Imad, and Babar meet, they bow respectfully to each other “Malik stated at a press conference after the match.
