New Delhi: Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar feels disappointed that someone as talented as Mohammed Amir has lost his way due to the spot-fixing controversy.
Amir, along with fellow teammates Salman Butt and Mohammed Asif, were found guilty of spot-fixing during a Test match against England at the Lord's last year, and has been subsequently banned from international cricket by ICC. Amir though has been learnt to have confessed his guilt in UK court.
"When I first saw Amir, I felt he was my mirror image. What a talent he was. He could swing the ball like Wasim bhai, he had pace like me. It's so heartbreaking that you get into bad company for 10,000-20,000 pounds," Shoaib told a gathering during the release of his biography "Controversially Yours".
