Pakistan have been whitewashed by the five-match one-day series in Australia recently in the United Arab Emirates. Amir played only one match in that series. Because of poor performance, he did not have any place in the next matches. The captain of a highly worried team, who is one of the best pacers in the team, said, "When the team's chief bowler does not get regular wickets, obviously the captain is concerned about that."
Amir had made an extraordinary force in the 2017 Champions Trophy final in England. He spanked three wickets for 16 runs in a spell. Pakistan won the title of India in his extraordinary performance. Since then, the star pacer is suffering from a form of drought. Due to the fact that his place in the upcoming World Cup team is skeptical.
Regarding the place in the Aamir squad, the Pakistan captain said, "I'm not sure whether Amir will be in the World Cup team or not." But our plans are very clear. And when the team is announced, everyone will know, who got the opportunity and who did not get it.
Pakistan will start World Cup campaign against the West Indies on May 31. Before that, they will fight five-match ODI series and one-off Twenty20 series against the host England on May 5. The decision to announce the final team of Pakistan on 18 April. They will be going to England on 23 April.
In 2010, Amir was charged with spot-fixing with Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, who had deliberately tried to do no-balls in the Lord's Test. When the allegations were proved in the ICC investigation, he was expelled from all forms of cricket for five years. His sentence expired in September 2015. He returned to the national team also.
