Mohammad Amir plays for Pakistan as a pacer and has claimed over 200 wickets in international cricket, across formats. He had seemingly announced his retirement from international cricket last month, following a fall-out with the current team management.
Pakistan pacer, Mohammad Amir was in the news of late for having seemingly announced his retirement from international cricket. However, according to his latest update, he could be back to the frame.
It was last month when Amir was not selected for the New Zealand tour. Frustrated at the same, Amir announced that he was walking away and deemed that he was "mentally tortured" by the team management, headed by head coach, Misbah-ul-Haq, along with bowling coach, Waqar Younis.
However, as per his latest revelation, he is mulling a comeback. "I will approach the board myself and tell them that I am available if there is a new management in place. I don't think that the issues with current management will be resolved now because mindset doesn't change in a day." he reportedly told Samaa TV, reports PTI.
He also sent out a tweet on the same, stating, "I would like to clarify that yes, I will be available for Pakistan only once this management leaves. So, please stop spreading fake news just to sell your story."

Speaking on why he had been dropped from the side, Amir reckoned that it was personal, and not for his performance. "The issue is not about performance, I know I can make a strong comeback, but it is about this mental torture they put you through," he said.
He also brought forward the fact that he was coming off a prolific performance in the Bangladesh Premier League, where he claimed 21 wickets, besides dismissing remarks about his dwindling pace. "My speed went down because I was not fully fit and fatigued. When I went to the Lanka Premier League, I was fresh and I bowled at 145KPH," he further asserted.
