Former Pakistani left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir is reportedly considering coming out of retirement for international cricket in the near future. Amir had announced his retirement from international cricket in 2020, citing issues with the then team management led by Misbah-ul-Haq. However, reports suggest that the Pakistan team’s selection committee has contacted Amir’s manager and asked him to be ready for international cricket once again.
There have also been hints that Amir could potentially play in this year’s ICC World Cup, scheduled for October-November in India. The cricketer has been advised to refrain from making unnecessary statements to the media.
Mohammad Amir had represented Pakistan in 36 Tests, 61 ODIs, and 50 T20Is before his retirement, and last played an international match in 2020. He was also part of the Pakistani team that won the ICC T20 World Cup in 2009 and the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017. Amir’s spell in the Champions Trophy 2017 final played a crucial role in Pakistan’s victory in the eight-team tournament.
