According to some reports, Pakistan spearheads Mohammad Aamir decided to come out of retirement after the resignation of head coach Misbah UL Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis.
Mohammad Aamir decided to quit international cricket as Pakistan Cricket Board appointed Misbah and Waqar Younis as coaches.
“Wasim Khan visited my house before PSL 6’s second leg and we had a detailed discussion on my retirement.
I shared all my concerns with him, and to be honest, he listened to them very seriously. My case was portrayed in a wrong way by the current management,” Amir was quoted saying by ARY Sports.
Aamir decided to quit international cricket in December 2020 citing differences of unjust and different treatment for different players by Misbah and Co. After not featuring for Pakistan, he decided to play in cricket leagues that took place around the World.
He played for Karachi Kings in Pakistan Super League season 6 and featured for Kent later in the T20 Blast took place in England.
“But Khan assured me he would address my concerns. If everything goes well, I will make myself available for the national team’s selection,” added Amir.
Pakistan are struggling at the moment across all formats. Under the captaincy of Babar Azam, they were whitewashed by a weakened England side captained by Ben Stokes and then lost the shorter format by 1-2.
With the World T20 slated to take place from 23rd October 2021 in UAE, Mohammad Aamir has not been selected in the squad. His performances in Pakistan colours deserve chances as he provided a much-winning spell during the finals of ICC Champions Trophy finals against arch-rivals India dismissing Rohit Sharma, Kohli.
Pakistan needs to be at their best in the World T20 as they are placed with India, New Zealand, Afghanistan and 2 qualifiers. Aamir has 36 Test matches, 61 ODIs and 50 T20I matches so far for Pakistan.
Aamir played his last T20I match against England on 30th August 2020 at Old Trafford. During that match, he gave away runs and did not bowl his quota of overs due to an injury.
