Pakistan’s fast bowler, Muhammad Amir’s hopes to play ICC cricket World Cup 2019, are seems to be faded when it emerged on Monday (May 13) that he is came down with a bout of suspected chickenpox.
The 27-year-old missed Pakistan’s second ODI against England at Southampton after team officials said he had come down with a viral infection, and was likely to miss the third ODI on Tuesday as well. But, according to a report, doctors now say that the viral infection is likely to be chickenpox.
How long it will take him to recover is not clear at the moment. But even if it is a week from when he originally fell ill, it leaves him with a monumental task to break into Pakistan’s 15-man squad. There are only two ODIs left in the series, on Friday and then Sunday. It is thought if he doesn’t recover in time for Friday’s game, it would be close to impossible for him to make it to the squad.
