There has been few positive discussions between myself and the PCB where they respectfully made me feel that I was needed and can still play for Pakistan after discussing with family and well-wishers, I declare that I am available to be considered for upcoming t20WC.

“I want do this for my country as it comes before my personal decisions. Donning the green jersey and serving my country has always been, and will continue to be, my greatest aspirations.”

After an impressive Pakistan Super League (PSL) season nine campaign where Amir showcased his skills as an experienced pacer, especially with the new ball and in death overs, the return of the 31-year-old to international cricket became a hot topic among fans as the 2024 T20 World Cup is nearing.

Despite constantly stating that he has no intenions of returning to international cricket, Amir took his retirement back and is likely to be selected for the 2024 T20 World Cup.
