Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Najam Sethi have given a ray of hope to the retired Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir. It is to be noted that the player was recently given a green signal by the PCB head. The PCB CEO also allowed the former Pakistan spearhead to train at the National High-Performance Centre.
In a big update, the Chairman Najam Sethi has issued a big statement on Amir’s comeback. Sethi said that the player make a comeback in Pakistan colours once he takes his retirement back.
“Mohammad Amir can play international cricket for Pakistan if he takes his retirement back. I always took a strong stance against match-fixing. I believe no convicted player should be spared, but at the same time, a player should be allowed to resume international cricket once he has completed his years of penalty,” Najam Sethi said during a media interaction.
The 30-year-old had called off his time in international cricket in 2020 after a “shabby” treatment he received. Prior to this, the former cricketer was banned for five years in a spot-fixing case in England in 2010.
