The 29-year-old is often seen posting controversial posts on his social media handle which receives mixed reactions from fans
Pakistan's former left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir has been very active on his keyboard rather than the cricket field ever since he announced his early retirement due to a dispute with the team management.
The 29-year-old is often seen posting controversial posts on his social media handle which receives mixed reactions from fans where mostly he is being trolled and bashed by the fans calling him a ‘fixer’.
The left-arm pacer recently tweeted where he praised Australia for playing better cricket in the three-match Test series in Pakistan.
even in our own conditions Australia is playing better cricket 👏👏👏👏👏👏— Mohammad Amir (@iamamirofficial) March 24, 2022
The fans looked agonised and reminded him to form a positive opinion for his former teammates rather than spreading negativity.

Amir has over three million followers and ironically he has all the time to reply to critics.
me soch rha tha tme answer na dn but ub tm ne fans k liye bad word use kiya hai to suno tm ne sawaal kiya tha k apka experience kia kehta hai mera experience kehta hai bara hi mutmin beghairat hai tu https://t.co/BifPM8uGyO— Mohammad Amir (@iamamirofficial) March 7, 2022
Remember, after Pakistan's historic win against arch-rivals India in the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup, Amir tried to pick up on former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh which turned into a heated battle between the two players.
hello everyone woh pochna yeah tha @harbhajan_singh paa ji ne TV to ni tora apna koi ni hota hai end of the day its a game of cricket 😊.— Mohammad Amir (@iamamirofficial) October 25, 2021
Lords mai no ball kaise ho gya tha ?? Kitna liya kisne diya ? Test cricket hai no ball kaise ho sakta hai ? Shame on u and ur other supporters for disgracing this beautiful game https://t.co/nbv6SWMvQl— Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) October 26, 2021
Shoaib Akhtar and Saeed Ajmal also asked Amir to apologise to Harbhajan for his remorseful behaviour.
Note, Amir announced his retirement in November 2020 after he accused then team management led by Misbah-ul-Haq of giving him 'mental torture'.
He has shown intention of a comeback in the national side and his tweets often give an impression that he is regretting his decision of taking early retirement and wants to come back but has not been entertained by the PCB.
The big question remains would he tweet the same if Amir was in the team and struggling to bowl on dead pitches that were the worst nightmare for bowlers.
