Mohammad Amir has cleared the air on rumours, saying he is not planning to withdraw his retirement as of now.

Instead, the star pacer said, he is focusing on the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL), in which he is the brand ambassador of Karachi Kings.

The fast bowler has also been practising at the National High Performance Center (NHPC) in preparation for his participation in the 2023 edition of the Bangladesh Premier League. Amir said that he sought permission to train the NHPC from the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Najam Sethi. “Najam Sethi was kind enough to allow me to train at the NHPC.”

Amir had retired from international cricket in December 2020, citing “mental torture” and the “hostile environment” he faced at the hands of PCB management as the reason for his departure.

Earlier this year after Ramiz Raja, the former PCB chairman, announced that he had made up his mind to resign, it was expected that the fast bowler would come out of retirement.
