Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has said that he was never against left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir.
While Hafeez has no personal issues with Amir, he noted that he was upset when the 28-year-old was indicted in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal.
Amir was banned for five years, but returned to play for Pakistan. However, he announced his retirement from international cricket last month, claiming he was being “mentally tortured” by the PCB and felt that the current team management had deliberately been snubbing him for selection.
While he won’t be representing Pakistan now, Amir made it clear that should the team management change, he will consider making a comeback to international cricket.
“I had never opposed Amir [a convict in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal] but I was against his act of being involved in spot-fixing,” Hafeez was quoted as saying by Dawn.
