Pakistan chief selector Haroon Rasheed said it’s good to see left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir playing in T20 leagues around the world.
Amir retired from international cricket in December 2020 as he was angry with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the coaching staff at that time.
The 30-year-old has mentioned the possibility to coming out of retirement to play for the men in green again, but since he has not taken any concrete action, Rasheed said he is unsure about whether Amir will make himself available for selection in the future.
“In Amir’s case, I am not sure about his status. I have heard he is thinking of taking his retirement back. It is good that he is playing,” he told Cricket Pakistan.
Pakistan are currently playing a limited overs series against New Zealand and are 2-0 up in the five-match T20I series.
