Mohammad Amir will no more represent Pakistan in cricket tournaments

Mohammad Amir will no more represent Pakistan in cricket tournaments

Mohammad Amir, the former Pakistan fast bowler, is poised to make a significant move to Derbyshire as a local player in the upcoming season, according to a report by The Telegraph.

This decision comes as Amir is on track to acquire British citizenship in 2024, courtesy of his marriage to Narjis Khan, who is both a British citizen and a lawyer.

Having retired from international cricket in 2020, the 31-year-old cricketer is now focused on obtaining British citizenship before finalizing his deal with Derbyshire.

Amir brings a wealth of experience in county cricket, having previously played for Essex and Gloucestershire. He also took part in the inaugural season of the Hundred for London Spirit. Should he successfully become a British citizen, Amir would be eligible to participate in the Hundred as a local player.

An interesting connection arises between Derbyshire and Pakistan, as their head coach, Mickey Arthur, also serves as the director of cricket for Pakistan. Arthur held the position of full-time head coach of Pakistan during the period when Amir played a crucial role in their bowling attack from 2016 to 2019.

In a recent interview with a local media news channel, Amir discussed his cricketing prospects, including the possibility of featuring in the Indian Premier League (IPL) with his forthcoming British passport. However, he firmly stated that he has no intentions of playing for England, as his loyalty lies unwaveringly with Pakistan.

Regarding the IPL, Amir expressed cautious optimism, stressing the importance of taking things one step at a time. He clarified that his immediate priority is obtaining his British passport first. Only then will he carefully consider the best opportunities available to him and make a decision accordingly.
