Mohammad Amir Criticizes Ramiz Raja for ‘Fixing’ Remarks, Claims One-Sidedness

Former Pakistan bowler Mohammad Amir slammed former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) president Ramiz Raja for his comments on rigging. This comes after Raja said that individuals facing rigging allegations should not be allowed to return to the game.

Amir last played for Pakistan in a T20I against England in 2020, and he subsequently declared his retirement from international cricket due to a lack of opportunities. The former pacer, however, has been permitted to practise at the National High Performance Centre under the current supervision of Najam Sethi. In an interview, Amir gave an honest evaluation of the former PCB chairman’s ‘fixing’ accusations.

“He’s a well-read individual, so no one expected him to make such things. With the way he speaks, it seems like only he is correct and everyone else is incorrect. Everyone has their own point of view. If 100 people disagree with me, maybe ten will. Some will like it, while others will not. “However, if you believe that just you are correct and everyone else is incorrect, that is not how it works,” Amir was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times.

Despite being one of Pakistan’s top pacers, particularly in white-ball forms, Amir was overlooked by the previous leadership. Furthermore, he was instrumental in the national team’s victory in the 2017 Champions Trophy.

After failing to get along with the previous administration, Amir has been given the opportunity to wear the Green jersey under Sethi. The 30-year-old bowler has played in 36 Tests, 61 ODIs, and 50 T20Is, taking 119, 81, and 59 wickets in the three formats so far, and there is a chance that he may make his comeback to the national team.

In terms of the Men in Green, they are presently engaged in a two-match Test series against New Zealand. They pulled a draw from the jaws of defeat in the opening match in Karachi. Pakistan will face the Kiwis in the last Test starting on January 2nd, with the goal of winning.
