The bowler, who was involved in a spot-fixing scandal during England’s 2010 Pakistan tour, said he is now focusing on preparing for the 2018 Bangladesh Premier League.
Mohammad Amir was suspended for five years after the spot-fixing scandal:
Amir was handed a five-year suspension following the spot-fixing scandal, but was allowed to rejoin the team in 2016 for another tour of England. He also contributed significantly to Pakistan’s victory in the ICC Champions Trophy the following year.
But when Mani took over as PCB chairman in 2018, the left arm lost favor as the board was adamant about not letting corrupt players play for Pakistan.
Amir also announced his retirement from Test cricket at the time, reducing his chances of being selected for Pakistan.
