Talking about Mohammad Amir's performance after the match, Imad Wasim said:
“I always believe he [Mohammad Amir] is the best bowler in the world, not just in Pakistan. Even on flat tracks, he's bowling so well. I always back him. I think he's the best bowler in the world I've played with. I think he's executing it very nicely."
Mohammad Amir quit international cricket after a disagreement with the Pakistan cricket team management. Amir has clarified he will don the green jersey for Pakistan only after the top officials change the backroom staff.
While Amir has stayed away from international cricket for months now, he has participated in various domestic leagues. After playing for the Pune Devils in the Abu Dhabi T10 League 2021, Aamir is now playing for the Karachi Kings in PSL 2021.
