Mohammad Amir opens up about retirement, eyes Pakistan comeback

Pakistan’s former fast bowler Mohammad Amir has opened up about retiring from test cricket. The left-arm pacer said that he decided to quit playing test cricket due to his fitness.

Mohammad Amir added that the reason for retiring from test cricket wasn’t that he stopped enjoying the longer format of the game. It was due to the fact that he hadn’t played for five years due to the spot fixing scandal and playing regular cricket since making comeback caused fatigue and injuries.

“When I felt my body is getting overload and in order to abate the threat of a major injury, I had to quit from the longer format,” he said.

The cricketer went on to add that he wanted to play for a longer period of time and represent Pakistan in the 2020, 2022 and 2023 World Cup, which is why it was important to retire from test cricket to avoid the risk of a major career ending injury.

Mohammad Amir is eyeing a comeback to the national cricket side.

“I saw this opportunity to play County Cricket and wanted to enjoy four-day cricket. I want to make this thing clear about Pakistan’s comeback, and I have been repeating this a lot, every player dreams about representing his county and Allah gave me a lot of respect (while playing for Pakistan).”

The Pakistani pacer was roped in by Gloucestershire as a replacement for injured Naseem Shah. A comeback to national cricket team will not be easy for Amir as the current pace attack of Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf and Mohammad Wasir junior are doing a brilliant job.
