    Amir is looking tired today cus of so much cricket in all formats. I think they should give him rest in the 2nd t20~ Give a game to Shaheen Afridi! We wont lose if we dont play Amir against Scotland in my opinion@ Just give a game to Shaheen Afridi! He will be fresh so he will perform much better than Amir at the moment!!

    I was surprised when I saw Amir and Hasan's name on the team sheet

    Perfect chance for Shaheen to play. No need to play Amir in the second game.

    I was thinking to make a similar Thread, you beat me to that. Anyways looks like we all agree that Amir does need rest.

    hopefully for a month or year to let someone better have a chance and so he can 'rest' fully.

    It's time we developed more youngsters to support Amir and Amir should maybe take a leave out of test cricket so that he can focus on the upcoming World Cup. We need Amir most in the World Cup right now!!

    Shaheen Afridi should be selected in test cricket in my opinion so do others like Usman Shinwari. Try some fresh blood in my opinion. We desperately need fresh people to work with as others are getting fatigued!!

    Mickey cannot drop Amir so having a pacer come in and out perform Amir would be detrimental to Daddy. Hasan is our best pacer. Fahim has to play because he can bat so if a pacer bowled his heart out there is only Amir he can replace.

    Pretty sure Arthur would be scrutinised if Amir replacement took a 5fer and was dropped next game to accommodate Amir again.

    Not only Amir but Hassan too.

    If you play them in full Test series, then rest them in these mickey mouse T20 and have Usman and others play.

    so amir - the world best pacer - is replaced and his replacement takes a wicket third ball, and then second ball of his second over? whereas the champ was the most expensive of the whole lot yesterday?

    he is just massively massively overrated, mostly by fanboys and girls.

    Agree with most of the sentiments here

    When you've got Shinwari, Wahab, Rahat in the reserves... really don't need to put extra burden on Amir & Hasan who are already in much demand for bigger series and franchise cricket around the world.

    No, he is not.

    India would have won the champions trophy had there been no Amir, Amir is in my top 5 fast bowlers in the world currently, he is a genuine match winner and perhaps the only big, big name in the Pakistan team.

    what good work is that then? apart from the CT final (he was absent the rest of the tournament including win or die matches) where he didnt even win man of the match because he didnt win us that game, fakhar did.

    if he is so good, how come he is not ranked anywhere near the top in any of the formats? hes had years now to cement his amazing top five legacy.

    its either 'they need rest' or 'they are not played often enough so have no continuity' for you guys, always some lame excuse instead of facing the facts that are black and white in front of you - hes just not that good.

    Man of the match is a subjective thing. Depends what you valued in that game. Removing the three big guns who pretty much ruled the whole tournament prior to that is a pretty big achievement.

    Not to downplay Fakhar - that was a fantastic performance too. Why can’t people just accept great performances regardless of who they prefer/hate?

    Amir has work to do - nobody denies it, but he is a key part of our attack.

    fc games on tour (includes tests):

    abbas played 4 matches on tour and took 23. he has only played 8 tests in his career.
    shadab played 5 and took 19. he has only played 4 tests in his career.
    amir played 5 and took 13. he has played 33 tests in his career.

    this is the uk in early summer.

    in what world does this guy deserve the hero worship he gets from the fans? because of one game? where he didn't even win man of the match? pathetic.
