Pakistan Pacer Mohammad Amir Makes Surprise Return to International Cricket for T20 World Cup

Pakistan cricket fans rejoice! Left-arm quick Mohammad Amir has announced his comeback to international cricket, setting his sights on the upcoming T20 World Cup. This news comes as a major surprise, as Amir had retired from international cricket in 2020 citing frustrations with team management.

While Amir will miss the start of the English County season with Derbyshire, his return is a significant boost for Pakistan’s T20 ambitions. He is expected to be named in the squad for the upcoming five-match T20 series against New Zealand in April.

Amir’s decision to return stems from “positive discussions” with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), where he felt valued and needed. His passion for playing for his country remains strong, as he stated on social media, “Donning the green jersey and serving my country has always been, and will continue to be, my greatest aspirations.”

This return follows a similar move by all-rounder Imad Wasim, who also reversed his retirement in anticipation of the T20 World Cup. With both experienced players back in the fold, Pakistan’s T20 World Cup campaign looks much stronger.

However, Amir’s return comes at a cost for Derbyshire. The English county side will now need to find a replacement overseas player for the upcoming season. Despite the disappointment, Derbyshire’s head of cricket, Mickey Arthur, expressed his understanding of Amir’s decision, acknowledging his long-held desire to represent Pakistan on the international stage.

This turn of events highlights the enduring appeal of international cricket for players, even amidst club commitments. Pakistan cricket fans will be eagerly awaiting Amir’s return and hoping he can make a significant impact on their T20 World Cup campaign.
