Mohammad Amir to Return to Gloucestershire for the Remaining games of Vitality Blast 2022:
Former Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir is all set to return to Gloucestershire for another stint as it was announced by the club on Thursday that the 30-year-old will be returning to the club again for the remaining games of the vitality blast. Amir was earlier signed for a brief period of 3 games out of which he missed 1 game due to a hamstring injury in the County Championship which marked his return to white ball cricket after his test retirement in 2019.
Mohammad Amir will play the remaining vitality blast matches for the side and comes in as a replacement for his fellow countryman Naseem Shah who has had injury problems recently. Amir has played 50 T20 games for Pakistan and has 59 wickets. He was last seen in action in the shortest format in the Srilankan Premier League representing Galle gladiators where he helped his side reach the finals. He also missed out playing in HBL PSL7 for his franchise Karachi Kings as he was ruled out of the tournament due to injury problems.
Talking about Amir’s return to the club Gloucestershire Cricket Performance Director Steve Snell stated : “We’re delighted to welcome back Mohammad to the squad. He’s a proven international performer and to have his experience available to us for the remainder of the Blast tournament will be invaluable. He has spent a lot of time with us this season and he knows the environment well, so for him to join us at this time will greatly help as we look to kick on for the second half of the T20 Blast campaign.”
Amir is expected to join the club shortly after which the fast bowler will be seen in action representing Gloucestershire for the remaining season of the Vitality blast 2022.
