Mohammed Amir, who had a most intriguing career for Pakistan and had retired from international cricket in December 2020, has once again expressed his willingness to return to international cricket.
When Amir retired last December, he accused the current team management of not treating him well while he was in the team. He also had said that he might think of revoking his retirement decision if the current management is replaced.
Amir also had earlier spoken to Wasim Khan of PCB and apprised him of his issues and concerns.
As luck would have it, both Misbah Ul Haq and Waqar Younis in the current coaching group of the Pakistan team have resigned from their posts immediately after the Pakistan T20I squad for the World cup was announced. They cited bio bubble fatigue for their resignation.
No sooner than they resigned, Amit has expressed his desire to be back. Even the Pakistan skipper Babar Azam wanted Amir to come back.
Amir had a cricket career marred by match-fixing charges when he lost 5 years of his career. Hailed as a prodigy when he burst into the scene as a fine left-arm fast bowling prospect, Amir till date has got 119 test wickets at 30 average in 36 tests, 81 wickets in 61 ODIs at 29 average and 4.78 economy and an outstanding record of 59 T20I scalps in 51 matches at 21 average and 7 economy rate.
If Amir comes back , Pakistan bowling will get a major boost .
The Pakistani fans are hoping for the best .
