“I have already had discussions with some players on Amir’s issues and we have tried to address concerns. I will again talk to Hafeez and Azhar and sort out this matter,” Shaharyar said.
ODI captain Azhar Ali told Geo News channel that they don’t want to take part in a camp which includes Amir. “But we are willing to discuss the matter with PCB chief,” he said.
