I am happy to see Mohammad Amir back playing international cricket: Michael Hussey
Former Australian batsman Michael Hussey has expressed delight over the return of Mohammad Amir to international cricket, stating that the left-arm pacer had already experienced a lot in his career and he was an 'outstanding' talent.
“I know he’s been through a lot in a short career really, but I’m personally happy to see him back playing international cricket. I feel like he’s done his time and he’s a class bowler.
"He’s an outstanding talent.He just kept running in hard all day being young and fresh. He certainly gave us a good battle out there. It was a shame he had to go through that tough period but hopefully he comes back bigger and better," he said.
