Amir has 2019 World Cup and best bowler award in sight

Pakistan’s Muhammad Amir is excited to be part of the 2019 ICC World Cup and wants to finish as the best bowler of the tournament.

This is the first time that Amir would be part of the World Cup squad having missed the previous World Cup on grounds of being suspended following his involvement in the spot-fixing scandal.

And looking to make up for lost time, the 26-year-old has said that it would be a dream come true for him to don the green of Pakistan at the World Cup.

“It’s a dream for any cricketer to play in the World Cup. It will be the first for me and I will try to do my best. It’s like a dream come true. Representing your country and playing a big ICC tournament, one has to be lucky for all this and I consider myself a lucky person,” he said.

Talking about how important it is to remain fit and healthy for the World Cup, Amir said: “Players prepare two to four years for a big event but then get injured just before the tournament. We have a good rotation policy and that’s why I’m well prepared for the tournament.”

And on his aims for the mega event, Amir said: “It’s such a big event, first of all I wish Pakistan win and then that I should be the best bowler in the tournament.”
