Former Pakistan cricketer Saeed Ajmal believes left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir does not have the right to demand the axing of Pakistan’s head coach Misbahul Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis.

While speaking to Cricket Pakistan in an exclusive interview, the spinner advised Amir to improve his performance before making aforementioned demands.

“From what he is saying, it looks like he was dealt unfairly. But I don’t know what happened between him and team management behind the scenes. He is saying that he will only play for Pakistan after Misbah and Waqar leave their post as head coach and bowling coach,” said Ajmal.

“It is not right for a player to ask for the removal of a coach. Amir should focus on his performance and cement his place before making such demands,” he added.

Ajmal also said that the left-arm pacer should not change his mind and stick with his decision to retire from international cricket

“Amir had given his retirement out of desperation but now he is thinking of coming back. If he has made his decision to retire, then he should stick to it,” he said.

Amir represented Pakistan in 36 Tests and took 119 wickets at an average of 30.47. He also featured in 61 ODIs and claimed 81 wickets at an average of 29.62.
