According to Mohammad Amir, former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi’s remarks on him over the incident involving Babar Azam during a Pakistan Super League (PSL) match are worthless. It all started between Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi earlier this year when Amir had thrown a ball towards his former colleague after getting frustrated post a boundary. Recently, Afridi said that he warned Amir for his on-field demeanour with Babar after which the left-hand pacer issued an apology for his behaviour.

“If you want to play for Pakistan, you have to play alongside Babar only. Will you be able to look at him in the eye? Can you play under his captaincy? Focus on your performance, control your aggression, and go back home peacefully,” Afridi had said.

In a recent interview, Amir spoke about receiving a message from Afridi but it was not related to the incident between him and Babar.

“I received his message but this wasn’t it. He only praised my bowling and enquired about my injury. But the things like ‘how will you face Babar’… this wasn’t in his texts at all. What harm have I caused Babar? or vice-versa? I found it very weird. I don’t know what he was thinking when he said that. I guess he speaks a little quickly so he might have mistakenly said that,” Amir was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.

Veteran Pakistan pacer also cleared the rumours over his relationship with Babar and said that the duo have mutual respect towards each other.

“Babar and I have a mutual understanding and respect. He never bad-mouthed me and same from my side as well. But public thinks we are enemies. It was never like that,” the left-arm pacer concluded.
