Warne hopes Amir to be at best against England

LONDON: Australian spin legend Shane Warne believes that Pakistan premier fast bowler Mohammad Amir will be at his best against England in upcoming Test series.

He was speaking to Sky Sports when he stated that “I feel for him. He’ll be fine. He is an excellent bowler. Hopefully he will be at his best for the series,” said Warne.

When asked what kind of reception he will receive at the hands of the English fans, Warne said: “I am sure he will get a good one.”

 Warne further stated that it will be a “who has a better bowling attack” competition in the Pakistan-England series which will commence from July 14 with the first Test to be played at Lord’s.

The 46-year-old believes the top-order will have to face a hard time trying to cope with the seam on English pitches.

“I think both the bowling sides will be good,” said Warne. “I think the top order will be tested, of both Pakistan and England.”
