Mohammad Amir mocks PCB after being snubbed from T20 squad vs Bangladesh

Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir has taken a dig at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials after he was left out of the 15-member squad announced of for the upcoming Bangladesh series at home. Pakistan will host Bangladesh for a three-match T20 series. After much discussion and intervention by ICC chief, Bangladesh has also agreed to play 1 ODI and two-match Test series in Pakistan as well.

He is agitated as the selectors decided to snub him even after he delivered a 6-wicket haul in BPL against Rajashi Royals. Amir plays for Khulna Tigers in BPL. He helped his team secure finals berth in BPL. The final match will be played on January 17 in Dhaka.

Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir became the first man to grab a six-for in the history of the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), and also broke the record for the best-ever T20 figures in Bangladesh, beating Shakib Al Hasan’s 6-18 for Prime Bank against Mohammedan in Sylhet in 2013.

Amir stands second to his former teammate Sohail Tanvir to record the second-best T20 figures. Tanvir, in the inaugural IPL season, bagged 6 wickets for 14 runs to hold the best bowling figure record which stands still even now. Tanvir did it while playing for Rajasthan Royals in a match against eventual finalists Chennai Super Kings.

Everybody including the pacer himself is worried as to why he was snubbed from the T20 squad. Amir, while replying on Twitter, said that he might be snubbed probably because he decided to quit from Test format.

Amir decided to take down his tweet and in a new tweet, he vowed to come back stronger to represent Pakistan in other formats of Cricket. The 27-year-old announced his retirement from Test cricket in July last year, however, he said he will continue playing white-ball cricket for Pakistan.
