PSL 8: Bowling to Babar Azam or tailender is same for me: Mohammad Amir

Karachi Kings pacer, Mohammad Amir, has made a startling statement, saying that bowling to Babar Azam or a tailender is the same for him.

While speaking to a local channel, the left-arm pacer said that his job is to pick wickets, regardless of who the batsman is at the crease.

“These kinds of matchups and player rivalries, keep players on their toes. I personally like these sorts of challenges because it keeps me focused,” said Amir

“My job is to take wickets and win matches for my team, so for me, facing Babar or a tailender batting at number 10 will be the same,” he added.

Peshawar Zalmi captain, Babar, has also played down his rivalry with his former teammate from Karachi Kings.

On a question regarding the potential of facing Amir in the aforementioned match, Babar said that he will stick to his basics, as he does against any other bowler.

“Competition is always good for the league. Not only Karachi, but every team has good quality local bowlers. That is why all foreigners play this league because it is a quality league,” Babar said. “When I play against any quality bowler, I stick to my basics.”
