Former Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir has lashed out at the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after the Men in Green suffered a one-run defeat to Zimbabwe in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 match on Thursday, 27 October. Amir posted a strongly-worded tweet and demanded the sacking of PCB chairman Ramiz Raja and chief selector Muhammad Wasim.


Pakistan entered this fixture after suffering a heart-breaking defeat against arch-rivals India at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Pakistan needed the win over Zimbabwe to improve their chances of qualifying for the semi-finals of the World Cup. However, despite needing only 131 for the win, they fell short by one run as they ended up with just 129/8 after 20 overs.


In his tweet, Amir questioned who will take the responsibility for this defeat and the team’s future in the tournament. He posted, “From day one I said poor selection ub is cheez ki responsibility kon le ga (Who will take responsibility for this now). I think it's time to get rid of so-called chairman jo pcb ka khuda bana hwa hai (chairman has become god of PCB) and so-called chief selector.”

Previously, Mohammad Amir had also called out the Pakistan Cricket Board after the selectors had announced the 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup. He had tweeted back then, “Chief selector ki cheap selection 😆.”


Taking about the game, Zimbabwe got off to an incredible start as the openers posted a quick-fire 42 in 5  overs. But soon their batting started to crumble as they couldn’t build on this incredible start and lost wickets at regular intervals. After the 10-over mark, Zimbabweans lost four wickets at the score of 95. 


But still, they managed to post a respectable total of 130 after 20 overs. Zimbabwe then took an early advantage as they picked up quick wickets. Their bowlers maintained putting pressure on the batters and finally edged out Pakistan to register the win.
