Mohammad Amir and his controversies are not something new in the cricketing fraternity. Last year, he took over the social forums announcing his retirement from all forms of cricket amidst his ‘personal issues’ with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). He urged that he is ‘mentally tortured’ by the current management taking an ‘indefinite retirement’ under it.
The day he lately has announced his availability once again for selection in the team, indeed was shocking to witness. No fan must be speculating Amir’s road back to the national squad after his comments against the PCB but the pacer was pleased by the CEO’s kind action of visiting him at his residence to solve the problems at two ends.

What can make people question his selection in the team if he enters, is his four wickets in the first phase of the league. Amir combines a total of 5 wickets featuring Kings in 11 innings averaging 69.80. Here are his stats of the season:
Tell us your opinion in the comments if the lad known as “king Amir” for his devotees, will be taking place in the national squad sooner. Notably, he may be optimistic about getting an opportunity ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021.
