LAHORE: Pakistan wicketkeeper-batter Sarfaraz Ahmed has backed pacer Mohammad Amir’s inclusion in the national side after the latter’s impressive bowling during the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) season nine.

Amir, who has claimed two wickets in as many matches, and Sarfaraz are part of Quetta Gladiators during PSL 9. The pacer’s death bowling has proven particularly useful for the Gladiators.

“The inclusion of Mohammad Amir has made a big difference. He has been bowling really well and has a lot of experience of playing T20 cricket,” Sarfaraz said while talking to Geo News.

“I have always told Amir that he can still play for Pakistan since he has a lot to offer. He can be useful for Pakistan but it depends on Amir how he sees his future with the national team,” he added.

Sarfaraz was also cautiously optimistic about his side’s chances after registering two wins in as many matches during PSL 9.

“It is too early to say anything but we have a good team combination and, if we continue playing like this, the team will get good results,” he said.

The wicketkeeper-batter also opened up about being replaced as Quetta’s captain by South Africa’s Rilee Rossouw.

“I’m relaxed and enjoying the game. Rilee Rossouw is leading the side really well,” he concluded.
