Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir to make come back in International Cricket.
According to reports, Selectors of the national cricket team Green signals that left-arm fast bowler Muhammad Amir to prepare himself for joining the Pakistan cricket team once again.
Credible sources have said that an important official of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) recently met Muhammad Amir’s manager and gave a green signal to the left-arm pacer by advising him to be prepared for a comeback in International cricket.

The sources further stated that he will soon be asked to take his retirement back, so he needs to keep practicing and keep himself fit till then.
In 2020, Amir took sudden retirement from international cricket. In his statement, the cricketer accused the then head coach Misbah and bowling coach Waqar Younis of doing favouritism.

“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,” said Sethi.
Muhammad Amir is the key-bowler for Karachi Kings. The bowler’s remarks and aggression often land him into controversy.
Mohammad Amir had represented Pakistan in 36 Tests, 61 ODIs, and 50 T20Is. He last played an international match in 2020. The pacer was also part of the Pakistan team when they won ICC T20 World Cup 2009 and ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
