Returning from retirement, Muhammad Amir Aims for Glory in the T20 World Cup

Read Time:2 Minute, 18 Second

In an unexpected development, veteran Pakistani bowler Mohammad Amir has declared his comeback to international cricket and made himself eligible for selection in Pakistan’s team for the June 1 start of the T20 World Cup. With a key reason of mental strain, Amir announced his retirement from international cricket in December 2020. This move represents a great recovery.

Amir shared his dreams with his friends and followers on social media, expressing his fervent wish to wear the green shirt once more. The 31-year-old cricketer declared, “I still dream to play for Pakistan!” He went on to say, “Life puts us in situations where we occasionally have to second-guess our choices. I’ve had a couple fruitful conversations with the PCB in which they kindly assured me that I was still required and could play for Pakistan.”

Following teammate player Imad Wasim’s announcement to reverse his retirement, Amir’s move gives Pakistan’s T20 team more depth and experience. Amir has a stellar record in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), despite a lackluster showing in the most recent Pakistan Super League (PSL), when he played for Quetta Gladiators. Amir’s dominance in the T20 format is still indisputable as he amassed 43 wickets at an incredible average of 14.39 and an economy rate of 6.50.

Considering their speed bowling deficiencies, Amir’s comeback could not come at a better time for Pakistan. Pakistan’s speed attack is severely limited with Shaheen Shah Afridi still recovering from an injury, Naseem Shah making a comeback after an extended absence, and Haris Rauf out of commission. Amir now has a great chance to demonstrate his abilities and guarantee his spot in the T20 World Cup team.

Due to his choice to come out of retirement, Amir will not be playing for Derbyshire County in the upcoming season, which has an influence on his obligations with the club. This action is indicative of his unwavering determination to represent Pakistan internationally once more. Furthermore, his availability for a series of Twenty20 international matches in Pakistan in April during New Zealand’s tour highlights his dedication to his country.

Amir thanked Derbyshire County and head coach Mickey Arthur in a poignant social media post for their patience and encouragement during this crucial time in his career. In addition to adding expertise and talent to Pakistan’s bowling arsenal, his comeback to the international scene acts as motivation for budding cricket players everywhere.

All eyes will be on Mohammad Amir as he sets out on a quest to restore his proper position in cricket history as the cricket world excitedly anticipates the start of the T20 World Cup. With his unparalleled skill and persistent drive, he is well-positioned to have a big influence on Pakistan’s hopes of winning the championship.
