A writ petition has been filed at the Sindh High Court in an attempt to stop left-arm pace bowler Mohammad Amir from making his comeback.
Amir was banned for five years after being found guilty of spot-fixing during a Test match against England in 2010.
However, the International Cricket Council (ICC) recently allowed Amir to make his domestic comeback since they believe that he has shown a high level of remorse.
But, according to social worker Faiz-ul-Haq Hasan, Amir has left an everlasting stain on Pakistan cricket and should not be allowed to play competitive cricket ever again.
“Amir stained the image of the country,” Hasan told AFP. “He is a proven fixer and will do it again if he is allowed to play again.”
Speaking to ESPNcricinfo about the petition, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) legal advisor Taffazul Rizvi said: “PCB is the sole regulator of the game in Pakistan and has always assisted the honourable court whenever the legal question with regard to cricket has been raised. In the petition I came to know that PCB is being directed and hence we will appear and submit the substance of material queries by the court.”
