Left-arm pacer emphasised the need to stick to basics
Karachi Kings pacer, Mohammad Amir, has opened up about his on-field clash with Peshawar Zalmi captain, Babar Azam, on Wednesday.
Babar played a match-winning 68-run knock from 46 balls against Kings. During the innings, he flicked Amir for a boundary, which frustrated the left-arm pacer and he threw the next ball towards Babar in desperation.
“It was heat of the moment thing and it was nothing personal [against Babar]. Bowlers should show aggression on the field, to get the best out of them,” Amir said in pre-match interview on Thursday.
“I was under pressure in the game, which is the beauty of this league. It helps you get better,” he added.
Amir conceded 42 runs in his four-over spell and went wicketless.
Left-arm pacer emphasised the need to stick to basics.
“In T20, there is no guarantee for success, so you have to execute your plans. If you keep making mistakes, you can’t win the game,” he said.
“I thought we did well as a team, but little things can make a huge difference. There is a still a long way to go in the tournament,” he concluded.
