Pakistan had a disappointing showing at home in 2022, as they lost the seven-match T20I series against England, were defeated in the 20-20 World Cup final by the same opponent, and then suffered a humiliating 0-3 series loss against Ben Stokes and his men, marking the first time in their 75-year history that they had been whitewashed.
Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Najam Sethi’s Big Statement On Former Pacer Mohammad Amir
Days after allowing tainted pacer Mohammad Amir to train at the National High-Performance Centre, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Najam Sethi has revealed that the former fast bowler of the Green Army can make a sensational return to international cricket. The former Pakistan fast bowler retired from international cricket back in 2020. Amir famously claimed that he had been “mentally tortured” by the team management before the star cricketer announced his retirement from international cricket.
‘Mohammad Amir Can Play International Cricket’: PCB Chief Opens Doors For Pakistan Pacer’s Comeback
The new PCB chairman said that he has a strong stance against match-fixing but feels that Amir has already paid the penalty for it and the doors of the Pakistan team are open for him
“Mohammad Amir can play international cricket for Pakistan if he takes his retirement back. I always took a strong stance against match-fixing. I believe no convicted player should be spared, but at the same time, a player should be allowed to resume international cricket once he has completed his years of penalty,” Sethi said while addressing a press conference in Lahore on Monday.
Earlier, former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-Ul-Haq also came in support of Amir and stated, “Mohammad Amir is a good player, no doubt. If his fitness is good and if he wants to play and does well at domestic circuit, then he should be considered for national selection for sure.”
Despite his international retirement, Amir continues to ply his trade for the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and will return for the eighth edition under new captain Imad Wasim. In 59 PSL games, he has taken 54 scalps at 29.59.
The 30-year-old fast bowler represented Pakistan in 36 Test matches and has played 61 ODIs and 50 T20Is as well. He has 119 Test wickets to his credit and owns 81 and 59 scalps in ODIs and T20Is, respectively. He last played for Pakistan in a T20I match against England in Manchester in 2020.
