Retired Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir has revealed his favourite bowler of the modern era.

The 31-year-old Amir, who is currently involved with New York Strikers at the Abu Dhabi T10, posted a video on X (formerly Twitter) where he is having a conversation with New Zealand pacer Trent Boult.

"With my favourite bowler of this era one and only Trent Boult," he wrote as a caption.

In a video, Amir and Boult could be seen guiding England's Luke Wood about the seam position. Boult and Wood were playing for Deccan Gladiators in the T10 league.

It must be noted that the final of the T10 league will be played today between New York Strikers and Deccan Gladiators.

Imad Wasim, Khawaja Nafay and Mohammad Zahid are the three Pakistan players part of the Gladiators while Amir and Asif Ali are part of Strikers.

Remember, Mohammad Amir retired from international cricket in December 2020. He is actively playing leagues across the world and has no plans to return to international cricket as disclosed by Pakistan Team Director Hafeez who personally spoke to the left-arm pacer, encouraging him to engage in domestic cricket if he has the desire to represent Pakistan again.

“I called Mohammad Amir myself and said that if you want to play for Pakistan, you should take your retirement back and you should play domestic cricket," Hafeez said before leaving for Australia.

"If you perform well, you will be selected in the Pakistan team. Once you come into the team, I assure you that you will be given equal opportunities like others. However, he said that he has moved on in his life and his priorities have changed in life, which we have to respect,” Hafeez added.

During a media interaction earlier this year, Amir reiterated his retirement, stating his belief that it was time for the younger generation to come forward.

"I have retired now, how am I hopeful for my return? If I hadn't retired, I could have said that I am very hopeful, but now I have retired. Now I have grown old, and there are youngsters in the team," Amir had said.
