Pakistan fast-bowler Mohammad Amir took to Twitter to express his support for the team for the World Cup campaign despite being omitted from the squad by chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq.

“Let’s support our team,” he said in a tweet, while also wishing the team luck for the mega event that starts in England from May. ““May the World Cup trophy come home.”

Amir does have a chance to make his way into the World Cup reckoning though, with his name being included in the five-match series against England.

And the left-arm pacer vows to give his all in that series, having disappointed in the last two years.

“I will give my 100% for the series,” he said.

Amir has claimed just five wickets in 14 matches since the start of 2018 and has therefore been dropped in favour of rookie pacer Mohammad Hasnain.

The 27-year-old impressed in his last outing in England, however, and will be hoping to force the management’s hand, with changes to the 15-man squad possible till May 23.
