Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief executive Wasim Khan said he still sees left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir as a “valuable player for us”.
Amir retired from international cricket in December 2020 after alleging that he was being “mentally tortured” by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and felt that the current team management had deliberately been snubbing him for selection.
However, he has confirmed that he will consider returning once the current team management, which includes head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis, leaves.
Given the frosty relations between Amir and the coaches, Wasim hopes to open communication between both parties again in a bid to try and get the 29-year-old to play international cricket again.
“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,” he said on the Cricket Baaz YouTube channel as quoted by Khel Shel.
Amir played for the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and took five wickets in 11 matches at an average of 69.80 and an economy rate of 8.37.
The Kings, who were the defending champions, were knocked out of the PSL in Eliminator 1 as they lost to the Peshawar Zalmi by five wickets.
The Zalmi will face the Multan Sultans in the PSL final on Thursday after beating Islamabad United by eight wickets in Eliminator 2.
