Pakistan’s left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir is all set to make a comeback in international cricket after Pakistan Chief Executive Officer, Wasim Khan visited the 29-year-old at his residence before the second leg of the Pakistan Super League.
Six months after his retirement, Mohammad Aamir said he is ready to join the national team. He further said that it was an honor for him that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Wasim Khan visited his house.
The left-arm pacer said that it has never happened in the past that the chief executive personally visited the house of a player and if matters are resolved, he will be available for the national cricket team of Pakistan. Amir also expressed his desire to be a part of the Pakistan national team again.
“Whenever I speak anything, people label that as an explanation. My decision to retire was taken in a bad light by many, but Wasim Khan coming to my place means a lot for me. If things go as per plans, I will play for the nation again,” he said.
Citing ‘mental torture’ as the reason, Mohammad Amir announced his retirement from international cricket in December 2020. The former Pakistan international circled down two individuals, Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis, as the reason behind him quitting from international cricket. The 29-year-old had later said that he will be available once the current management changes.
Wasim Khan, in a recent interview said that Amir is a valuable player for the team and that he was making an effort to sort out the issues between him and the management.
“I also made it clear to him that the path he adopted was not right as a senior player. I think Amir is a valuable player for us even now and we will now make efforts to bring about a rapprochement between him and the coaches,” Khan had said as quoted by Times on India.
