Kamran Akmal, the former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman, said left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir “should definitely” be considered for selection.
Amir retired from international cricket in December 2020, but has hinted on a few occasions that he may consider coming back to represent the men in green.
While nothing concrete has happened, Akmal still feels that the national selectors should keep the 31-year-old at the back of their minds should he decide to come out of retirement in the future.
“We should definitely consider him (Amir),” he said on Events & Happenings Sports’ Youtube channel as quoted by Cricwick.
