Pakistan left-arm pace bowler Mohammad Amir will play Grade 2 cricket from March 9 after agreeing to sign with Karachi-based Omar Associates.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) recently allowed Amir to start playing domestic cricket again since they believe he has shown a high level of remorse for his role in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal.

“We have signed Amir to play for our team in Grade 2 as we think that everybody deserves a second chance in life and career,” Nadeem Omar, who is the chief of Omar Associates, said. “We have signed Amir because he has fulfilled everything which was required of him and the ICC and the Pakistan Cricket Board cleared him.”

Despite being allowed to play domestic cricket, Amir is still banned from representing Pakistan in any international matches until September 2.
