Will Mohammad Amir play international cricket: The former Pakistani speedster had retired from international cricket last year.
It was almost six months ago when former Pakistan speedster Mohammad Amir had hung his boots from international cricket alleging mental torture.
“I don’t think I can play under this management. As far as [international] cricket is concerned, I am leaving it because I am being mentally tortured. I don’t think I can tolerate this anymore. I have already seen a lot of torture from 2010 to 2015,” Amir had told Pakistani journalist Shoaib Jatt in a Twitter video.
Since then, Amir has been the centre of attraction in the Pakistani media as there have been multiple speculations around him including a possible stint in the Indian Premier League.

Most recently, Pakistan captain Babar Azam had opened up being ready to speak to Amir regarding an international comeback. Azam had laid emphasis on resolving issues between Amir and the team management.
Much like Amir, PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) CEO Wasim Khan has also spoken about “making all efforts” to bring back Amir to Pakistan’s national team.
“I also made it clear to him [Mohammad Amir] that the path he adopted was not right as a senior player. I think Amir is a valuable player for us even now and we will now make efforts to bring about rapprochement between him and the coaches,” Khan told Cricket Baaz’s YouTube channel.
