Mohammad Amir, the former Pakistan fast bowler, retired from all forms of international cricket in December 2020. The Gujjar Khan-born last played in the tour of Pakistan back in August and hasn’t donned the national jersey ever since then. After being left out, Amir decided to hang his boots from the highest level and also alleged the Pakistan team management for mentally torturing him.
It was clear that he wasn’t happy with the management, comprising of Waqar Younis and Misbah-ul-Haq among others. In 2019, Amir quit Test cricket and the decision didn’t go down well with a number of former Pakistan cricketers. In the meantime, reports of the 28-year-old Amir coming out of retirement are doing the rounds.
“I will approach the board myself and tell them that I am available if there is a new management in place. I don’t think that the issues with current management will be resolved now because mindset doesn’t change in a day.” Amir was quoted as saying by Samaa TV.
Mohammad Amir lashes out
In the meantime, the speedster isn’t happy about the reports around him. He was clear cut in saying that he would be available to play for Pakistan only when the present team management retires. He urged the media houses to stop spreading false news for the sake of publicity.
“I would like to clarify that yes I will be available for Pakistan only once this management leaves. so please stop spreading fake news just to sell your story.“
Here’s the tweet: –
