Chief Selector Inzamam Ul Huq hints at good news for pacer Mohammad Amir
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan’s Chief Selector, Inzamam Ul Haq said if Mohammad Amir can regain his form in the ODI series against England, he can still be considered for the World Cup squad.
The left-arm fast bowler, who played an integral role in Pakistan’s Champions Trophy triumph, has been axed from the preliminary World Cup squad, which raised eyebrows around the world.
“We still have a chance [to select Mohammad Amir],” said Inzamam Ul Haq while talking to ARY News. “He is a senior bowler and has got quality, if he gets his form back and performs well in the England series then we can consider him.”

However, Pakistan’s World Cup 1992 hero brushed off the argument that Amir should be selected for the mega cricketing event just on the basis of experience.
“We can compromise on performance a bit because of experience and other add-ons, but still performance matters,” he said. “If Amir will be in the side, with his experience and quality, the captain will be happy and it will benefit Pakistan.”
