Mohammad Amir Returns from Retirement, Available for T20 World Cup

Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir reverses his retirement decision, making himself available for selection in the upcoming T20 World Cup, citing positive discussions with the PCB and a desire to serve his country.

Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir has announced his return from retirement, making himself available for selection for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024. The left-arm pacer, known for his lethal bowling, shared his decision via social media platform X, expressing his desire to don the green jersey once again and serve his country.

Amir cited positive discussions with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as a significant factor in his decision to reverse his retirement. The board, through its chairman Mohsin Naqvi, expressed its welcoming stance toward Amir’s return to international cricket, although the final decision on his inclusion in the squad rests with the new seven-member selection committee.

Amir’s return comes amidst speculation about Pakistan’s pace bowling lineup, with key players facing injury concerns. With his impressive track record and recent performances in domestic leagues like the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), Amir’s availability presents a promising option for bolstering Pakistan’s bowling attack in the T20 World Cup.
