Mohammad Amir to be returned to International Cricket very soon which is under consideration. Amir was suspended for five years from international cricket due to involvement in spot-fixing scandal of 2010.
Chairman PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) Shahryar Khan has said,
“We are considering Mohammad Amir, I have to call senior players and Amir and tell Amir that there should be modesty and humility in him. People will look to him. It looks like he has performed well over the last four-five months and is knocking on the door for us to consider him. If coach and selectors decide that he has to come, we will ask the board of governors before taking a decision on him.”
On return to Pakistan, Amir is super active in domestic cricket and showing his best to perform very well. He has been playing very well for the last four to five months and has proved himself to be considered again for international cricket.
Waqar Younis Said,
“We had a detailed discussion on Mohammad Amir and we all are on same page, if he has served his punishment he deserves to come back in the community and enhance his profession. If he has been given permission to play in BPL there’s no wrong thing in it. He is in very good form. He has proved it. He has proved to the ICC, he has proved to the PCB that he is on the right track and it’s our responsibility that we should give him another opportunity.”
Looks like the door is opening again for Amir. Amir is just 23 years old now but very amazing and fantastic player that must be given a chance once again.
