“Mohammad Amir has not contacted the PCB in this regard. The fast-bowler is not a contracted player and therefore is not bound to discuss this decision with the cricket board. He is completely free to make his own decisions,” he said.

Amir has been in a war of words with the Pakistani head coach, Misbah-ul-Haq, and bowling coach, Waqar Younis, recently. Amir has taken tacit digs at them on social media after he was overlooked for the squad against New Zealand.

Mohammad Amir had already retired from Test cricket in July 2019, however, he continued to play limited-overs cricket. Amir had been in and out of the team ever since his decision to retire from red-ball cricket.


  • Very sad. Pcb easily recommended Amir’s retirement neither pcb described his issue nor pcb declared to solve his problem with management. He didn’t want to leave international cricket I think pcb desires.

  • Diplomatic response from PCB is in tolerable at this stage. Wrong decisions by incapable PCB Management/ Admin has lost diamonds earlier and Muhammad Amir (MA) is a Jade in this regard. MA can still serve the Pak Cricket Team till next Intl Cricket World Cup. Internal politics of PCB management/ admin will lost the next world cup if decision of MA to quit Pak Cricket Team is accepted.
    Please Think Deeply.
