In an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan, Pakistan captain Babar Azam indicated that he will speak with retired bowler Mohammad Amir regarding his decision to retire from international cricket.

Babar, who is now in Abu Dhabi for the final six matches of the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL), considers Amir to be one of the top left-arm bowlers in the world.

“I haven’t spoken to him yet [regarding retirement] but we will discuss the problems he is facing when I get the opportunity to talk to him,” said Babar.

“He is one of the best left-arm bowlers [in the world] and I really like him. I’m hopeful that he continues to perform well in the upcoming second half of PSL,” he added.

Amir had retired from international cricket after reservations with Pakistan’s team management, especially head coach Misbahul Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis.

The Pakistan pacer featured in 36 Test matches, bagging 119 scalps, over the course of his career, after making his debut against Sri Lanka in 2009. He has also played 61 ODIs and 50 T20Is in his limited-overs career, taking 81 and 59 wickets respectively.
