Wasim Akram, the head coach of Karachi Kings and a former Pakistani test cricketer, has come out in support of Mohammad Amir’s aggressive behavior on the field during the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Amir has been heavily criticized this year for showing aggression towards fellow players including Mohammad Haris and Hassan Nawaz.
In response to the criticism, Akram said that on-field aggression spices up the game and that there is a need for characters and a bit of rivalry. He also emphasized that friendly gestures should not be involved during the game, and that little words off the field add spice to PSL, making it all the more beautiful.
Akram further added that instead of criticizing individually and consistently, people should enjoy this healthy on-field rivalry. Mohammad Amir, who currently holds the fifth position as the best bowler in the PSL 8, has taken nine wickets in the league so far.
