Pakistan’s bowling coach Waqar Younis believes that pacer Mohammad Amir’s presence, during England tour, will help the young bowlers in the squad.

Amir was included in the Pakistan squad as a replacement for rookie pacer Haris Rauf, after the latter repeatedly tested positive for Covid-19.

“Amir remains part of our plans for the future as he is experienced. We want to utilise him if he is up to the mark, if he can win matches for Pakistan. Next year we have the World Cup,” Waqar said in an online media interaction. “The young bowlers will learn from him.”

“It hurt at that time when he decided to retire from Test cricket but we have to move on and do what is best for the country,” he added.
