‘Pakistan didn’t deserve to play in T20 WC final’: Mohammad Amir’s candid confession | Tech US News


Pakistan were once considered to have been knocked out of the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final, but Holland’s win over South Africa in the Super 12s earned them an extra ticket to the last four. Pakistan then defeated New Zealand in the semi-finals before losing to England in the final. While Pakistan have a medal for finishing second in the tournament, their former player Mohammad Amir feels that the team does not even deserve to make it to the finals.

In a conversation on News 24HD, Amir gave his honest assessment of Pakistan’s T20 World Cup campaign. He reiterated that the team’s batting has not been at its best for almost the entire tournament.

“The fact that we played in the final is a big thing. We didn’t deserve to play in the final. The whole world knows how we progressed to the final. Allah helped us get there. You will know the results if you look at our batting performance. When we came from Sydney, it was predicted to happen,” Amir said.

“I told you earlier that if the pitch at the MCG is the same as it was in the first match, Pakistan will fight and we did. We got off to a good start after winning the toss and we knew what the conditions were like,” he added.

In his scathing assessment of the team, Amir even said that Mohammad Haris, while showing ‘intent’, also needs to have some ‘feel’ about which shots to play and when.

“We talked about Haris and his intention. But you have to have the intention as well as the intention. He took on Adil Rashid on the first ball, he was trying to come down the track.

Made progress

“You can’t leave it to someone else on these pitches. The new batsman will struggle. Ben Stokes has shown that experience and awareness of the game,” Amir asserted.

Pakistan’s bowling attack was widely described as the “best in the world” in the format due to the way they fought back while defending a low total of 137 runs. But the batting unit, including captain Babar Azam, is still a work in progress.
