Amir comes out of retirement

The 31-year-old made himself available for the upcoming T20 World Cup in the Americas in June.

Amir retired from all forms of international cricket in 2020.

The left-arm speedster last played for Pakistan in a T20I in Manchester.

“I still dream to play for Pakistan! he wrote on his X account. “Life brings us to the points where at times we have to reconsider our decisions.” There [have] been few positive discussions between myself and the PCB where they respectfully made me feel that I was needed and can still play for Pakistan.”

“After discussing with family and [well] wishers, I declare that I am available to be considered for [the] upcoming T20WC. I want [to] do this for my country as it comes before my personal decisions. Donning the green jersey and serving my country has always been, and will continue to be my greatest aspirations.”

Amir’s turbulent career

Amir first announced his international retirement in December 2020 at just 28.

The left-arm bowler said he could no longer play under the then-management and that he was being “tortured mentally”.

Amir was banned from 2010 to 2015 on spot-fixing charges. He also served time in prison for his crime.

 He returned to play for Pakistan in 2016. 

So far, Amir has played 36 Tests, 61 ODIs, and 50 T20Is for an aggregate of 259 scalps across formats.
