Captain of a Pakistani cricket team Babar Azam said he would talk to Mohammad Amir and persuade him to return to the national fold after bowling came to the current management of the team after his retirement from international cricket at the end of last year.
There is speculation that Amir may move to England and see the Indian Premier League (IPL) contract as a British citizen.
“When we talk, we will discuss his problems [with the national side] are, “Azam was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.com.
He is one of the best left-handed bowlers and I really admire him. The way he has performed in the PSL (Pakistan Super League) so far, I just hope he will perform in the same way again and that is what we are focused on so far “, added Azam.
Both Amir and Azam play for the Karachi Kings in PSL.
Amir, who gave up international cricket, had been knocked out by Pakistan’s bowling coach Wakar Eunice, after which coach Misbach-ul-Haq attacked him.
Earlier, former Pakistani captain and fast bowling captain Vassim Akram had said that the young nation’s fast bowling unit needed Amir.
“I still think he should have a place in the Pakistani team. We have three World Ball Championships in the coming years. I have long said that bowlers come in packages. When you have senior bowling in the package, he can guide the young bowlers in pressure situations by talking to them. They can have a big impact by giving them confidence and giving them opportunities, “Akram told Cricket Pakistan recently.
