PCB chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq provides details on how Muhammad Amir can make a comeback for the Pakistan National Cricket Team.
In 2020, Muhammad Amir Retired from International Cricket, Yet Continues to Shine in the World of Franchise Cricket.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has just revealed its lineup for the upcoming 2023 ODI World Cup, scheduled to begin on October 5 in India.
The Pakistan team Led by captain Babar Azam, the team faced a setback as pace sensation Naseem Shah was sidelined due to injury. In response to this unfortunate development, Pakistan has summoned the experienced fast bowler Hasan Ali to step in.
At a press conference held to introduce the team, Inzamam-ul-Haq, former Pakistan captain and the current chief selector of the PCB, took center stage. He talked about the squad and the possibility of Muhammad Amir returning to the national team.
Inzamam discussed Amir’s potential return to the Pakistan team.
He acknowledged Amir’s past contributions to Pakistani cricket and highlighted that, at present, Amir had retired from international cricket. Inzamam suggests consistent performance in first-class cricket for left-arm pacer’s comeback.
Inzamam’s View on the Possibility of Amir’s Comeback :
“Amir has been a great cricketer. He has taken retirement. If he wants to play for Pakistan, he will have to play first-class cricket and perform there. If he performs, then he will definitely be considered. The selection door is not closed for any player.”
Inzamam also noted that the same scenario applies to other players, such as Sarfraz and Imad Wasim. He emphasized that they too must perform well, and the selection doors are open for all eligible players.
“The same is the case for Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shan Masood, and Imad Wasim”
Although Muhammad Amir has retired from international cricket, he remains active in franchise cricket and continues to deliver consistent performances.
In the current 2023 CPL season, he is a part of the Jamaica Tallawahs and currently ranks as the third-highest wicket-taker in the tournament.
