WC 2019: - Pakistan Announces World Cup Team, Mohammad Amir Left Out, But Why?

Pakistan did not place the fast bowler Mohammad Amir in his 15-member World Cup squad on Thursday because of poor form but their whole members know he is an experienced player, while batsman Abid Ali inducted into the team. Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq announced the names of World Cup team and two reserve players. 



Inzamam said that 11 players of the 2017 Champions Trophy-winning the team have got a place in the World Cup team.

"We hope and confidence that Pakistan will perform well in the World Cup," said Inzamam. The selectors has left the left-arm fast bowler Aamir in the squad for the first time in the 14 ODIs after the Champions Trophy two years ago but has also relied on veteran Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez.

Inzamam said that making Hafeez's place in the World Cup team would depend on his hundred percent fit. He is currently recovering from a thumb injury. Inzamam said that the aggressive batsman Asif Ali and Aamir were kept in the reserve players for the one-day series against England and the practice matches before the World Cup.

Why?

Aamir had 55 wickets in 36 matches till the final against India two years ago. Those wickets came with an average of 27.41 and a strike rate of 33.90.

He was not able to bring wickets in two of the five series he was involved in since the Champions Trophy. In another match, against Zimbabwe, they took only one wicket in three matches. In all these series he averaged 50 or more.

Except for Mohammad Abbas, all Pakistani pacers have performed better than Aamir in this time frame.
