Lahore: Pakistan selectors Thursday left out pace spearhead Mohammad Amir from the preliminary 15-man squad for next month’s World Cup to be held in England.
The 27-year-old has been in wretched form since guiding Pakistan to win over India in the Champions trophy final in June 2017, with just four wickets in 14 matches.
But the left-arm fast bowler, who missed the 2011 and 2015 World Cup due to a five-year ban on match fixing imposed in 2010, has a lifeline as teams can be changed until May 23 -- seven days before the ten-team event starts.
Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said Amir’s form was concerning.
"Amir had not performed as well as was expected of him," said Inzamam, who was part of Pakistan’s World Cup winning team in 1992.
