Narjis Amir, the wife of former Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir, has once again criticized the double standards surrounding her husband’s performance in the ongoing Pakistan Super League. In a recent tweet, she compared the aggression and actions of Amir with fellow pacer Shaheen Afridi, highlighting the unfair treatment that Amir has received from critics. Amir himself retweeted his wife’s tweet.
During an earlier match this season between Karachi Kings and Peshawar Zalmi, Amir had thrown the ball towards Babar Azam in frustration, a behavior that was criticized by Shaheen Afridi. In response, Shaheen emphasized that the competition should remain focused on the bat and ball and that sledging is not appropriate as families watch the games.
Here is what Mohammad Amir’s wife has to say
This is not the first time that Narjis has taken a dig at Lahore Qalandars captain Shaheen Afridi and Pakistani fans this season. In February, she had retweeted a picture of Amir and Shaheen celebrating a wicket, highlighting the unfair treatment that her husband receives for his on-field behavior.
Amir has faced criticism from former cricketers and fans on the internet for his on-field behavior and over-the-top celebrations in recent matches.
