Amir decided to Withdraw his retirement
According to the latest developments, the out-of-favor Pakistani cricketer has reportedly volunteered to come out of retirement in order to play for the Babar Azam-led side on the international circuit.
“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.” Amir was quoted as saying by Samaa TV.
In the meantime, the speedster isn’t happy about the reports around him. He was clear cut in saying that he would be available to play for Pakistan only when the present team management retires. He urged the media houses to stop spreading false news for the sake of publicity.
“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.“
