Pakistan cricketer Mohammad Amir is one of the best pacers that the country has ever produced. However, the career of 29-year-old cricketer has been nothing short of a roller-coaster ride over the years. After making his debut for Pakistan in 2009, the left-arm pacer established himself as one of the best bowlers in the world but his alleged involvement in the spot-fixings scandal led him to face 5-year ban from playing competitive cricket. Amir finally returned to international stage once again in 2016 and continued from where he left. But things did not go as smoothly as he planned as he announced his retirement across all formats two years back.

I am being mentally tortured: Amir in 2019

The left-arm pacer made the shocking announcement in July 2019 where he claimed that he was being tortured by team management. In a video, he had said, "Right now, I am leaving cricket. I am being mentally tortured. I don’t think, I will be able to handle this kind of torture because I have been tortured a lot from 2010 to 2015.”

However, Amir has continued to impress everyone with his performances in Pakistan Super League. With so many mega events lined up for next few years, it has been revealed that Pakistan Chief Executive Officer, Wasim Khan went to Amir's residence before the resumption of PSL 2021 to sort out the matter between the player and the management.

Amir is a valuable player for us: Wasim Khan

Wasim Khan had earlier revealed that he had made it clear to Amir that the path he adopted was not right as a senior player. "I think Amir is a valuable player for us even now and we will now make efforts to bring about a rapprochement between him and the coaches,” stated Khan.

And now, Mohammad Amir has also admitted that he is ready to make a comeback in international cricket if things go as per plans. “Whenever I speak anything, people label that as an explanation. My decision to retire was taken in a bad light by many, but Wasim Khan coming to my place means a lot for me. If things go as per plans, I will play for the nation again,” said Amir.
