Its less than a day in Pakistan-England Test Match, and the temperature around is getting hot as verbal fight between both the teams is at its peak.
The hot topic is none other than Mohammad Amir’s return against the English side. Cricketers worldwide are openly commenting over the situation, English stars like Alasitar Cook, and Kevin Pietersen are the latest to comment against the left handed bowler, at the same time Amir’s supporters are not in mood to remain quite.
The latest cricketers to back Amir are Shahid Afridi and Sachin Tendulkar. Both the players are of the firm belief that Amir should be given second chance.
Shahid Afridi also spoke about the British media tactic to pressure star player, but at the same time he also extended support for the left arm pacer.
British media is putting undue pressure on Amir. But I know he’s mentally v strong, I’m backing him & IA he’ll do wel for Pak. Stay strong!

On the other hand Sachin Tendulkar commented over the Pak-Eng series,“It’s going to be great series. It is their batting which will be tested in English conditions and pitches. If Pakistan bats well in the series then they have a bowling attack that can trouble England. It’s going to good comparative series.”
On a question about Mohammad Amir getting a second chance, Tendulkar believes that he deserves a second chance. “He is a good bowler and I think he has skills. There is no doubt that he will do some damage to the England side.”
