Former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir has fallen on the receiving end of some harsh reactions and trolls on the micro-blogging site Twitter. It all happened when Babar Azam recently talked about Babar Azam’s batting in the ODI and Test cricket in comparison to his batting in the T20I cricket.

“I have always said that he is a great batter in Tests and ODIs. In T20s, I have a different opinion related to him. As a bowler, I don’t see Babar as threatening in the T20 format. Now if someone gives the wrong angle to this statement then I can only pray for his guidance,” said Amir to Tabish Hashmi during a show on Geo News.

Subsequently, a section of Pakistan cricket fans immediately took to Twitter and came up with a lot of trolling reactions for Mohammad Amir after his statement about the Pakistan skipper. Some of the fans also questioned Amir’s eligibility to even talk about Babar Azam.

Here’s how fans reacted:

Later on, in the interview with Tabish Hashmi, Amir also recalled the times when fans questioned him earlier. Amir said that he had never written off Babar Azam while talking about the latter’s potential in international cricket.

“Show me one interview in which I said that Babar is an average player or a tailender. In all my interviews, I have called him the best batsman of Pakistan, which I am saying with my own mouth, and have said in many places, that it is difficult to bowl against him in ODI and Test matches due to his technique. So, would I call him a tailender? Let me make it clear to these people,” said Amir.

“My point was that whether it’s Babar or a number 11 playing, taking wickets is important for me because it benefits the team. For example, if 12 runs are needed in the last 2 overs and 8 wickets are down, then tailenders are the ones playing, right? So, they are also equally important to dismiss. That was my point. For me, every wicket is important whether it is Babar’s or a tailender’s,” he added later.
