Earlier in January, former Pakistani skipper Shahid Afridi opened up about the controversy between fast bowler Muhammad Amir and the coaches saying that such behavior had become a tradition of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
Afridi said the PCB management should treat the players like their own children and should establish a relationship with them like father and son.
The PCB should have informed Muhammad Amir earlier about his future, he said. He also said that Shoaib Malik should have been brought back before the T20 World Cup.
Previously, the fast bowler Muhammad Amir, criticising the head coach Misbah ul Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis, had said, “Coaches are so diplomatic. What they say while speaking to the media is totally different from what they carry in their hearts”.
Moreover, Amir has refused to play with the current management team due to their mindsets.
Amir said respective education was required to become a coach. “If someone is a good player, it doesn’t mean he could be a good coach as well.
On the other hand, Misbah Ul Haq expressed disappointment while speaking to media saying that in 2016 he brought Muhammad Amir in the team and supported him in every possible way. He also clarified that he didn’t have any personal grudge against Amir.
Waqar Younis revealed that he supported Amir during Najam Sethi’s time but he’s really saddened to hear Muhammad Amir’s statement.
