Earlier, the Chief Selector of the Pakistan Cricket Team Inzamam-ul-Haq said Mohammad Amir and Imad Wasim would be selected for the national team if they play first-class cricket.
“The doors of the Pakistan team are open for everyone, be it Sarfaraz Ahmed, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Amir or even Shan Masood, they are all good players and have performed for Pakistan,” said Inzamam-ul-Haq.
“However, the criteria for selection is our domestic cricket, whoever wants to get selected needs to perform in domestic cricket to be in contention,” he further added.
“Mohammad Amir is a good cricketer but he is currently retired, but just like everyone else, doors are open for him,” he concluded.
