Mohammad Amir, who retired from international cricket after his differences with the team management and Pakistan Cricket Board, reacted to the possibility of his return.
He was allowed to practice at the National High Performance Centre by new PCB chairman Najam Sethi.
In a candid conversation with reporters outside the NHPC, Amir thanked Najam Sethi for his permission.
“I came here to practice before leaving for Bangladesh Premier League. It felt nice to be back at the National High Performance Centre as it has the best facilities. Thanks to Najam Sethi for giving me his nod,” he said.
When asked about his return to international cricket, Amir hesitated to open up on the issue but later admitted that he would like to play for the country.
“If Allah permits,” he said. Amir also praised Pakistan for its performance in the first Test against New Zealand, which ended in a draw.
“Credit to Pakistan for the way they played. Sarfaraz Ahmed, Saud Shakeel and Imam-ul-Haq played well,” he added.
