Mohammad Amir likely to miss World Cup due to suspected chickenpox

LONDON: Fast bowler Mohammad Amir is likely to miss the World Cup as it emerged on Monday that he had come down with a bout of suspected chickenpox.
The 27-year-old missed Pakistan’s second ODI against England at Southampton on Saturday 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 by ESPNCricinfo, doctors now say that the viral infection is likely to be chickenpox.
Amir is said to be currently with his family in London and not with the Pakistan team. It is unclear how long it will take the fast-bowler to recover.
There was no official word from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) or team officials yet regarding the matter.
