Mohammad Amir speaks on ‘coming out of retirement’

Mohammad Amir speaks on 'coming out of retirement'

Former Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir has responded to rumours citing ‘Amir is coming out of retirement’. He has denied the circulating saga from the last many days and says does not have any such plans. The left-armed bowler says he has no intention of returning to international cricket. Amir, the 29-year old is currently enjoying league cricket and life with family.

The news circulating speculated Amir’s return after the fall of the PTI government, also causing major changes in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). However, he has taken notice of it, clearing the confusion.

Mohammad Amir denies ‘coming out of retirement’

Notably, Amir retired from international cricket on a sudden note in December 2020 saying he does not want to play under then PCB management, including Misbah ul Haq as head coach and Waqar Younis as bowling coach. Amir revealed he was mentally tortured and couldn’t take it anymore.

However, a few months after his retirement, he came back out of it making himself available for selection. The bowler revealed that time’s Chief Executive Wasim Khan visited his home before the Abu Dhabi leg of the Pakistan Super League PSL 6 to make up things between the board and him. The ice between the two parties melted and Amir deliberately took his retirement back.

In 2021, despite the conflicts, the PCB offered him Domestic Contract 2020-21, Category A, but he furiously turned it down saying that the board should know about his retirement, league-oriented future plans – so much confusion if or not he wanted to play for Pakistan.

Amir, who already had retired from Test cricket in 2019, mentioned that his focus will be limited-over cricket. However, he was bashed for the reason since people mentioned ‘Amir has ditched the country once again willing to play for money’.

As of now, since Ramiz Raja will reportedly step down as PCB chairman, Amir, ditching the no-tolerance policy, can come out of retirement again, however, he has denied returning to international cricket as per recent reports. It must be noted Raja set a no-tolerance policy for the players with tainted pasts. You must read to know why Raja will retire as the board’s chairman.
