Pace bowler Mohammad Amir has recently cleared the air about coming out of retirement in international cricket.

Amir, who shockingly announced retirement from international cricket back in 2020 at the age of 28, has denied the possibility of a comeback to international cricket.

“I would have felt the absence of international cricket if I were not playing cricket. I am enjoying league cricket, and international cricket is not on my mind,” Amir said while talking to a local news channel.

The 31-year-old pacer is representing Quetta Gladiators in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 9.

He also acknowledged his role in the team and expressed his aim to give impactful performances that can help the team win.

“My effort is to make an impact in the match because having a complete impact is more crucial than merely taking wickets.

“If the team requires a bouncer at that moment, I will bowl a bouncer. Until you create pressure, you won’t get wickets.

“Scoring centuries and taking five wickets won’t be beneficial if the team loses. My focus is not solely on taking wickets but on playing an impactful role in the match.”

Notably, former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed commented on the potency of the left-arm pacer to take back his retirement from international cricket.

Sarfaraz acknowledged the value Amir brings to T20 cricket in a recent interview with a local news outlet and expressed confidence in the latter’s abilities.

“The inclusion of Mohammad Amir has made a big difference. He has been bowling really well and has a lot of experience of playing T20 cricket,” Sarfaraz said.

“I have always told Amir that he can still play for Pakistan since he has a lot to offer. He can be useful for Pakistan but it depends on Amir how he sees his future with the national team,” he further added.
