Punjab, Pakistan – In a recent statement, Pakistan’s T20I captain, Shaheen Shah Afridi, expressed his strong desire to see Mohammad Amir back in the national team. Amir, the talented left-arm fast bowler, has been absent from international cricket for over three years, creating a noticeable gap in the cricketing landscape of his homeland.

Despite officially retiring from international cricket in 2021, Amir’s potential comeback has been a topic of persistent speculation. The recent change in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) administration, marked by the removal of Ramiz Raja as chairman, was expected to pave the way for Mohammad Amir’s return to Pakistan Cricket. However, lackluster performances in this year’s Pakistan Super League raised doubts about his international comeback.

Shaheen Afridi, who has publicly expressed deep respect for the senior player, recently shared his positive experience of bowling alongside Amir during the ILT20 2024 while representing the Desert Vipers. The duo’s partnership left a lasting impression on Shaheen, who emphasized the value Amir could bring to the team.

I will talk to Mohammad Amir if he’s available to come back for Pakistan once again,” revealed Shaheen Afridi. “Amir and I bowled together after almost 5 years. It was a very good experience; our partnership was great.”

Both Shaheen and Amir are currently playing for the Vipers in the ongoing ILT20 2024. While Amir has embraced the role of a globetrotter, participating in various short-format franchise leagues worldwide, Shaheen hopes to convince him to prioritize a return to the national side.

Despite efforts by Mohammed Hafeez, the new Pakistan team director, to persuade Amir, it remains uncertain whether the left-arm pacer will choose to rejoin the Men in Green. For now, cricket enthusiasts eagerly await further developments in this intriguing saga.

Stay tuned for updates as Shaheen Afridi continues his efforts to bring Mohammad Amir back into the fold.
