Pakistan left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir made a shocking announcement of retiring from international cricket last year but now has changed his decision to come out of it. This will be a great sign to Pakistan cricket as Amir has been one of the best talents from the country in the last decade or so and he still has so many years in him to represent his country.
Amir has been in fine form recently in the ongoing CPL for Barbados Royals and he was seen in the Hundred tournament in England as well for the London Spirit. He had few fitness concerns earlier but has recovered well now and looks in good rhythm at the moment. Amir has taken 59 wickets in 50 T20I games so far at an average of 21.4 and at an economy rate of 7.02.
Mohammad Amir’s Clash With Pakistan’s Team Management
Mohammad Amir announced his retirement from international cricket in December 2020 after having clashes with the head coach Misbah Ul Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis and he even admitted this as the reason for his decision so early. Amir had last played for the Pakistan side in the 2020 England T20I series in August and has been playing only franchise cricket after that.
However, his surprise return to international cricket as reported by Daily Pakistan could be due to the sudden stepping down of Misbah Ul Haq and Waqar Younis from their positions. There has also been a change in the director of Pakistan with Ramiz Raja taking the duties and this could have had an impact on Amir’s Decision as well.
