    DUBAI: Pakistan´s pace spearhead Mohammad Amir was ruled out of the five-match one-day series against Sri Lanka after suffering a shin injury during the ongoing second Test in Dubai on Saturday.

    Pakistan Cricket Board said the 25-year-old had an MRI scan, after which he was advised to rest for two to three weeks.

    "Amir has been ruled out of the ODI series against Sri Lanka due to a stress related injury in the right shin. The fast bowler has been advised two to three weeks rest after he underwent an MRI scan," said a PCB release.

    Amir walked off the field on Friday during the first day´s play in the second Test, but was cleared to bowl on Saturday.

    He managed to bowl just three overs though, 19.3 in the match, before once again limping off the field.

    Pakistan were 51-0 without loss after Sri Lanka piled up 482 in their first innings. The tourists lead the series 1-0.

    Amir will be replaced by another left-arm paceman, Usman Shinwari.

    The first one-day international will be played in Dubai on Friday, followed by two in Abu Dhabi (October 16 and 18) and the last two in Sharjah (October 20 and 23).

    The two teams will also play three Twenty20 internationals, the last in Lahore on October 29 -- subject to security clearance.

    Forget about that. The immediate concern is whether he will bowl anymore in this ongoing test match.

    This was bound to happen when you play half fit players continuously and the way it's going Yasir won't be too far behind either the way he's being used. The only thing for Yasir is that there is no test cricket for Pakistan in the next 7 months so he can have a good rest as he isn't played in ODI or T20's.

    Lulz ok, getting whitewashed to this SL team (whom India whitewashed in every format a month ago in their den) in a home test series is not a new low! :D

    Fine then, sleep well !! :D

    And nobody cares about a useless tournament like the Champions Trophy too. World cups are the real deal. :p

    We have done pretty well in SA over the last few tours, either drawn the test series or lost marginally. I expect us to do well this time there.

    And our players atleast are displaying the hunger to do well in England next summer by playing county cricket there.

    I am really glad that we are not playing Pakistan anytime soon in tests, else the standard excuse after the thrashing would be that "our geezer brigade has retired". :D

    I'd be surprised if you win from here. A couple of quick wickets don't matter, the lead is already close to 250 and you need to be batting last.

    Wahab aint my cousin! But, this is the reason why I rate Wahab so much!! When he is off his game, he is awful!! But, when he is in bowling well, he wins matches on his own!! He is a match winner!! It's just the confidence issue!! Team management needs to give him confidence rather than over coaching him too much!! He bowls well when he is feeling well and this no ball and run up issue has effected his bowling so much!! But, he has still managed spells that have won matches or he has been amongst wickets!!

    I seem to have a policy for him,Wahab is no doubt a good player but make him work for his place,He has realised he has fallen out of favour in all 3 formats.He isn't a work horse were he will give it his all,Sometimes he does not give one at all,And For that you should never assure him of his place make him work hard for it,After that spell against Australia Wahab rarely chipped in.So you have to drop him after a bad or alright performance to make him work harder and when he does it he is a good bowler.

    Sky sports is about £24 per month and it counts as a waste as they show nothing to do with Pakistan.

    Injury woes: Amir was overused, says Razzaq

    [​IMG]


    No rest: Amir had been bowling across all three formats and has been playing a lot of domestic cricket as well ever since his return. PHOTO: AFP

    KARACHI: Pakistan’s series against Sri Lanka has gone from bad to worse as they lost pace spearhead Muhammad Amir to injury and former fast-bowler Abdul Razzaq believes the hosts are now up against it in the upcoming ODI series.

    Amir had struggled to impress in the ongoing Test series before limping out of the second game, during which he will bat if needed but will not bowl as Pakistan face an uphill task of keeping their unbeaten record at home intact.

    Amir’s fellow Karachi Kings pacer Usman Shinwari will be replacing him but Shinwari’s four T20Is have yielded just one wicket so far; a statistic that suggests he may not be ready to fill Amir’s boots just yet.

    Shinwari has played 19 List A matches, where he has taken 30 wickets for 799 runs, but Shinwari may not even be given a chance considering Pakistan do have the likes of Hasan Ali, Rumman Raees and Junaid Khan to call upon — with all three impressing during the Champions Trophy.

    Razzaq though believes the pressure is firmly on the aforementioned trio of pacers to deliver the results.

    “Amir has been bowling in all three formats since he came back,” said Razzaq. “His injury surely has something to do with him being overused. This really puts added pressure on the other three pacers since now there is almost no margin of error.”

    Razzaq called upon Champions Trophy’s man of the tournament Hasan to step up to the plate. “Hasan will have the most expectations on him to fill the gap left behind by Amir, but Rumman and Junaid also have impressive ODI stats.”

    However, the former all-rounder did put his weight behind Shinwari. “He has a lot of potential and he is passionate about the game. He made his T20 debut way back in 2013 but was out of cricket for two years due to injury. However, since then he has worked hard on his bowling and is once again a very good bowler.”

    Razzaq did concede, though, that Shinwari’s lack of experience may well be his undoing come the ODI series. “His fitness is surely up to the mark but he lacks experience,” said Razzaq. “However, this series can provide him with that. Every good bowler needs to be trusted first if they are to gain a spot in the first team. If he manages to perform well here, he might put pressure on his fellow pacers and may well make a place for himself in the future.”

    They are.

    Wahab Picked up 4 wickets, Haris 3, even that trundler M.Abbas with 1. Other bowlers are picking up wickets while this guy is riding on hype.

    Why single him out you say? Well its cause he is supposed to be our spearhead is he not? Since his return to international cricket all his fans have done is make excuses for him.

    He won you the CT final didn't he? And now we are going to judge a fast bowler's performance on dead UAE pitches?

    And he did pick up a wicket in the first innings if you are going to count Abbas's wicket.

    He alone did not win us CT it was a team effort. Don't forget Fakhar Zamen's performance. And if you wanna go by CT performance alone than before that one final he was gone missing. The best bowler for us was Hasan Ali thats a fact.

    Only one till he got injured. I would rely on Wahab or Abbas to get us wickets instead of this guy. Where was he in the first Test by the way?

    Mohammad Amir was ‘misused’ – Atiq-uz-Zaman rages at team management

    Atiq-uz-Zaman


    KARACHI: Head coach of SSGC cricket team, Atiq-uz-Zaman on Tuesday lashed out at the Pakistan team management for “misusing” fast bowler Mohammad Amir, who broke down towards the end of the Test series against Sri Lanka in UAE and was ruled out of the upcoming ODI series.

    “The team management did not handle Mohammad Amir properly,” the departmental coach said, claiming that the bowler, who has represented SSGC in domestic cricket, was “misused” and “overworked”.

    “He has been playing non-stop cricket,” Atiq-uz-Zaman pointed out, referring to Amir’s stint for Essex in English county cricket over the past few months.

    “Amir has broken down. He plays with [tapes and bandages] on his body,” the coach lamented.

    “He should only be made to play ODIs and T20s,” Atiq-uz-Zaman added.

    Amir was ruled out of the five-match ODI series against Sri Lanka due to a stress injury in his right shin. He was taken off the field after bowling 19.3 overs in Sri Lanka’s first innings on Saturday, the second day of Dubai Test.

    A statement from the PCB said the pacer underwent MRI scans after complaints of pain in his shin and following the scans, he has been advised a rest of two to three weeks.

    How was he overworked? Pakistan don't play much cricket anyways. If he was playing every game for India across all formats, like say Kohli, then it's understandable.

    Amir, prone to be injured. Has been an automatic selection over the past 18 months. Has been playing non-stop. Faster recovery
