The 28-year-old had announced his retirement from international cricket last month after a dispute with the head coach, Misbah-ul-Haq, and bowling coach, Waqar Younis.

Former players, including Shoaib Akhtar, and Shahid Afridi, had regretted Amir’s decision and asked him to reconsider it. Akhtar, Afridi, and Inzamam-ul-Haq had urged Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) high-ups to speak to Amir and resolve the issue.

However, just a month after his announcement, the left-arm pacer has now hinted that he may come out of retirement if the coaching setup is replaced.

I will approach the board myself and tell them that I am available if there is new management in place. I don’t think that the issues with current management will be resolved now because the mindset doesn’t change in a day.
