Shoaib Malik has no issue playing alongside Amir at Dailymotion.When asked if he will have a problem if Amir is pitted in the national team with him, Malik said: “Not at all, actually I’m fond of him and I always feel like acting like an elder brother (senior) to him when he is around, and this has been the case since he first joined the team.
LAHORE: Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik said he is fine with tainted left-arm pacer Muhammad Amir making a comeback to the national team and he would not have any problem playing alongside him.
“He is a good boy. I know you are asking me this question because of the mistake Amir made in the past or the comments a few players might have made, or probably both. They are both wrong in my opinion, but then who am I to judge? Judging is for Allah alone and He teaches me to forgive, as forgiving is a sign of Godliness and He loves forgiving,” added Malik.
Amir, in his first international assignment after coming out of the five-year ban for spot-fixing, took 14 wickets for the Chittagong Vikings with an economy rate of 5.56 in the recently concluded Bangladesh Premier League.
