Srinagar, Aug 2: While almost whole Pakistan cricket community is still angry at Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir for leaving Test cricket, former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi has said that he made right choice. Afridi has said that Amir did not had it in him to continue in the Test Cricket.

As per Pakistan’s –Daily Express, Afridi said that Amir’s decision made sense to him as “one should leave something that doesn’t make you happy.”

Afridi further said that Amir just did not have it in him physically to give his all in the taxing, tiring game of Test cricket.

“In Test cricket, along with swinging old and new balls, you also need speed,” he said.

“Amir’s pace with new ball is fine but he struggles with the old ball. You cannot survive in the longest format without that. 

“That is why I think, considering his fitness, he made the right choice.”
