Mohammad Amir was the man who knocked out India in ICC Champions trophy 2017. After that, he has played 14 ODI matches and could take only four wickets. But the selecting committee can change the squad till May 23. The 27-year left-arm fast bowler has missed the 2011 and 2015 World cup due to the suspension on match-fixing. Let’s see, if the management will rethink and add Amir to the 15-man Pakistan World Cup team.

Chief selector Inzamam Ul Haq has selected Mohammad Amir in the 17-man squad against England, just before the world cup. He has to perform at his best to impress the selectors before May 23. That is the only Amir can regain his spot in Pakistan world Cup Team.
