I think the trainers and team doctors are in a better position to decide that.... Amir is apparently dealing with a muscular issue which are generally treated more lightly. Who am I to say he should sit?

I like that management doesn't want to settle for being a joke. I'm certain they are not threatening Amir to play either. This management franchise has been pretty player friendly, but sitting players for every minor injury promotes a soft culture.

It's a delicate balance.
