Amir backs Dubai Cricket Council’s offer to host India-Pakistan bilateral series

0

“I
practiced
for
two
days.
When
I
run
for
long
or
if
I
speak
for
too
long,
I
start
coughing.
It
is
difficult
because
you
feel
fatigued.
But
as
a
professional,
you
need
to
have
the
mindset
to
get
yourself
out
of
that
zone
or
it
will
keep
troubling
you.
You
know
your
responsibilities
to
your
body.
I
am
improving
day
by
day,”
Amir
said.

The
veteran
fast
bowler
also
expressed
a
desire
to
be
a
part
of
the
team
in
the
final
4-5
games
and
also
added
that
he
has
no
pressure
from
Bangla
Tigers.

“I
wish
to
play
the
last
4-5
games.
The
team
is
performing
well
at
this
point
and
we
have
found
our
winning
combination.
It
helps
me
as
I
can
take
an
extra
day
or
two
if
needed
to
recover.
There
is
no
pressure
from
management
and
they
have
told
me
I
can
play
whenever
I
start
to
feel
better,”
Amir
added.

Amir,
who
has
played
36
Tests,
61
ODIs,
and
50
T20Is
for
Pakistan,
spoke
about
the
intricacies
of
playing
as
a
fast
bowler
in
the
T10
format,
where
each
bowler
only
gets
to
bowl
two
overs
per
innings.

“You
feel
pressure
every
second
in
T10.
It
is
good
for
a
player
to
be
under
experience
because
it
improves
the
skills
of
a
player.
It
is
a
very
tough
tournament
for
a
bowler
because
the
margin
of
error
is
minimal.
There
is
no
room
to
settle.
Your
game
awareness
increases
as
you
are
constantly
planning
how
you
can
bowl
a
dot
ball
or
prevent
boundaries,”
Amir
said.

“If
I
get
swing
on
the
surface,
I
will
take
my
chance
with
it.
It
does
not
matter
which
format
it
is,
you
should
always
go
with
your
strengths.
If
you
are
not
able
to
find
swing,
then
you
have
to
change
your
plans
in
T10
because
batsmen
come
with
the
mindset
to
start
hitting
shots
straightaway.
You
may
need
to
start
bowling
as
one
does
in
death
overs,”
he
added.

Speaking
on
the
environment
at
the
T10
franchise,
Amir
said:
“I
found
the
environment
at
Bangla
Tigers
very
relaxing
and
it
never
feels
like
we
all
belong
to
different
parts
of
the
world.
This
is
an
integral
aspect
of
the
team’s
success,”
Amir
said.

Amir
also
went
on
to
speak
about
the
possibility
of
bilateral
series
between
India
and
Pakistan
being
held
in
Dubai
after
Chairman
of
the
Dubai
Cricket
Council
Abdul
Rahman
Falaknaz
offered
to
host
the
same
in
the
city
over
the
past
week.

“It
is
a
good
gesture
and
we
should
thank
him,”
Amir
said.
“But
until
the
governments
from
the
two
countries
do
not
sit
down
to
discuss
their
problems,
till
then
the
third
parties
cannot
do
anything.
It
also
depends
on
the
cricket
boards
of
both
the
nations
and
what
their
thought
process
is.
If
all
parties
agree,
and
if
there
is
a
bilateral
series
between
India
and
Pakistan
in
Dubai,
it
will
be
great
for
the
sport,”
he
said.

Amir
also
slammed
trolls
for
criticising
Pakistan
fast
bowler
Hasan
Ali
for
dropping
Matthew
Wade’s
catch
in
the
World
Cup
T20
semifinal
against
Australia
and
praised
the
team
for
their
performance
in
the
tournament.

“Our
team
went
to
World
Cup
after
New
Zealand
series
and
England
series
were
cancelled.
Coaches
came
in
contracts
of
one-two
months.
There
was
a
change
in
management.
Performing
in
this
environment
is
a
big
achievement.
Even
India,
who
were
playing
Indian
Premier
League
in
UAE,
were
not
able
to
qualify
for
the
semifinal
stages,”
Amir
said.

“Those
who
troll
have
no
cricket
sense.
Every
player
has
dropped
catches
in
their
career,
and
Hasan
is
a
good
fielder.
Also,
we
did
not
lose
the
match
because
of
the
dropped
catch.
You
cannot
troll
this
team,
you
can
only
give
them
credit
for
how
well
they
played,”
he
added.

On
speculations
of
coming
out
of
international
retirement,
Amir
said
that
at
this
point,
he
is
focused
on
playing
Abu
Dhabi
T10
and
other
leagues.

“I
was
in
contact
with
Wasim
Khan.
There
is
new
management
and
chairman
at
PCB.
I
have
not
spoken
to
any
of
them.
You
have
to
keep
your
self-respect
and
if
I
say
I
will
come
out
of
retirement
and
the
board
has
no
plans
for
me
to
return,
then
it
would
not
be
fair.
So,
at
this
point,
I
am
focused
on
T10
and
other
cricket
leagues,”
he
signed
off.
