Former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir has expressed that he won't be available for the national side until Ramiz Raja holds the chair of the Pakistan Cricket Board. Amir announced his retirement from international cricket a few years back because of neglected treatment from the management. 

"Our relationship goes back a long way and it won't end. Everyone knows Ramiz Raja's views about me so I don't think this is the right time to consider taking back retirement. When Ramiz Raja leaves PCB, I will make an announcement about my availability if needed," Mohammad Amir said.

Mohammad Amir in the same interview also addressed how the PCB chief is an extremely contrarian person as the rules he has set for other people don’t apply to him. The left-arm pacer then talked about Ramiz Raja as a power-hungry person and only wants to hold his position on the board in any way possible. 

“His stance doesn’t change for other people but the rule doesn’t apply to him. If you see his old videos, he had said that he wouldn’t stay for a minute if Imran Khan left. His stance about leaving has changed now. Jaan chali jaaye but kursi naa jaye (He won’t give up his position no matter what). Kursi toh sabko pyari hoti hai. Enjoy karne dein unko (Everyone loves being in a powerful position. Let him enjoy),” added the fast bowler Mohammad Amir.

Mohammed Amir started his international career in 2010 as a young sensational left-arm pacer until he was banned for five years for spot-fixing. The 30-year-old then made his comeback in 2015 and was a crucial part of Pakistan's 2017 Champions Trophy triumph.

Mohammad Amir has 119 wickets in 36 Tests whereas in ODI cricket, he has taken 81 wickets from 61 games and 59 in 50 T20Is. The 30-year-old had recently opened up about how it is too early to return to Test cricket. While speaking in a recent interview he said, "It is too early to talk about a Test return. You never know and things can be changed but for now, I'm enjoying playing for Gloucestershire."
