Mohammed Amir Hints at Potential Return to Pakistan National Team

Former Pakistan speed spearhead Mohammad Amir voiced his excitement at the idea of returning to the national team. Amir opted to retire due to a lack of chances under previous PCB chairman Ramiz Raja, having last represented the team in a T20I match against England in 2020.

However, only days after Ramiz was fired by the supreme board, Najam Sethi, the newly appointed PCB chairman, permitted the pacer to practise at the National High Performance Centre. The 30-year-old told reporters that he is looking forward to putting on the Pakistan shirt again.

“If Allah wills, I will return to play for Pakistan. But I’d want to participate and do well in the PSL “According to NDTV, Amir said.

Following Raja’s dismissal, a 14-member committee led by Sethi has been established to oversee the game’s operations for the next four months. Amir praised Sethi and temporary head selector Shahid Afridi, saying they had “spent substantially” in him.

“I’ve been tormented by hearing that the PCB put a lot of money into me. I’ll only say that two individuals made significant investments in me: (former PCB chairman) Najam Sethi and (former Pakistan captain) Shahid Afridi. They were the only two there. ‘We don’t want to play with Amir,’ stated the rest of the squad “While announcing his retirement from international cricket in December 2020, the bowler remarked.

The Punjab-born bowler has appeared in 36 Tests, 61 ODIs, and 50 T20Is, taking 119, 81, and 59 wickets, respectively.
