Mohammad Amir‘s cricketing journey has been marked by highs and lows, including a suspension in 2010 due to a spot-fixing scandal, which saw him banned for five years alongside Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif. However, since his return to the sport in 2016, he has contributed significantly to Pakistan’s cricketing endeavors, participating in Tests, ODIs, and T20Is, amassing an impressive tally of wickets.

His decision to return coincides with fellow player Imad Wasim’s reversal of his retirement decision, adding depth to Pakistan’s squad for the upcoming tournament. Moreover, the PCB’s restructuring of the selection committee, now comprising seven members with equal authority, aims to streamline the selection process and involve key stakeholders, including the captain and head coach.

With changes also afoot in the coaching setup and the restoration of central contracts for players like Haris Rauf, Pakistan’s cricketing landscape is undergoing a significant transformation ahead of the T20 World Cup.
