Mohammad Amir Announces a Condition to Come Out of Retirement

Former Pakistani pacer, Mohammad Amir, may consider coming out of retirement if the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) approaches him. The 29-year-old had announced his retirement from international cricket in December last year over a serious disagreement with the then team management.

Addressing a virtual press conference during the ongoing T10 league in Abu Dhabi, Amir said that he can’t announce his availability for the Pakistan team until PCB provides him a guarantee of being selected for the national side.

He added he may announce his availability for the national team on his own but he fears that the PCB would deny him the chance of representing Pakistan again by saying the team doesn’t need such players.

Amir also disclosed that he had held several rounds of talks with the former CEO PCB, Wasim Khan, regarding his return to the national side but since he’s gone, he isn’t sure whether the incumbent PCB management would ever approach him.

The left-arm pacer represented Pakistan in 36 Tests, 61 ODIs, and 50 T20Is. He took 119 wickets in Tests at an average of 30.47, 81 wickets in ODIs at an average of 29.62 and an economy rate of 4.77, and 59 wickets in T20Is at an average of 21.40 and an economy rate of 7.02.

Amir is playing for Bangla Tigers in the T10 league this year. Unfortunately, he tested positive for Coronavirus before the 2021 T10 league officially started on 19 November. He missed the first four matches of the tournament due to the viral infection. He joined Bangla Tigers after testing negative earlier this week and played his first match for Bangla Tigers against Deccan Gladiators last night.

  • Pakistan should help China set up a cricket team and help them become a test playing nation to counter balance the Indian domination. Also Turkey too.

  • I strongly hope that Ramiz Raja being a man of integrity would never allow him a comeback…let alone approaching him…

  • If Ramiz think that Amir has a tremendous talent yet, and (Amir) be able to change game at every stage when needed,
    Then he should definitely allow him to play Cricket and serve country with experience.

  • Please be kind with him let him play for pak he still has huge talent left he is game changer what a back to back lefty sh shah afridi and amir try to help him out i would love to see him back. Thanks guys

  • Such A egoistic player he is, he think he above the Game, Sir Lord Amir, please dont bother think about offering your services for Pakistan Cricket Team, Alhamdulilah we are now way better than when you left team…

  • I think he shouldn’t have retired. He should have thought about country not for himself. He should remain patient as eventually coaches and selectors keep on changing.

    PCB also should be kind and try to let him come back as he is a match winner. He shouldn’t be wasted like Asif.

  • Amir is a drama queen.
    He destroyed the reputation of Pakistan cricket out of greed. He is worst role model for young sportsmen. Pakistan should close the book on this dramabaaz cheat.
