Former captain and renowned all-rounder Shahid Afridi of Pakistan has provided a direct response regarding the future of retired bowler Mohammad Amir.
The left-arm, who was allegedly treated poorly by management, including head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis, announced his retirement from international cricket in December 2020.
On Sunday, Afridi was questioned on Twitter about whether the PCB should take Amir’s return to the national team into consideration.
Afridi responded, “I don’t think PCB will be interested,” in response to the query.
As a young left-arm paceman in 2010, Amir gained widespread recognition.
He was referred to as “the most talented fast bowler” by the legendary Pakistani fast bowler Wasim Akram.
Amir’s career, however, came to a snag in 2010 when he was given a five-year suspension in a spot-fixing case.
Amir claimed 119 wickets in 36 Test matches, 81 in 61 one-day matches, and 59 in 50 Twenty20 matches.
