Lahore: Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq has stated that players like Mohammad Amir should consider making a comeback to first-class cricket and perform well. Inzamam emphasized that doors are not closed for any cricketer, including Amir, and that he remains a talented bowler. Amir had previously announced his retirement, but if he wishes to play for Pakistan, the doors of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) are open for him. He should play first-class matches and showcase his performance, and his potential selection will be considered.
Inzamam noted that the PCB and the selection committee do not permanently close doors for any player. He cited examples like Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shan Masood, and Imad Wasim, who can make a return to the national team based on their performance.
Inzamam-ul-Haq emphasized that the decision to play for Pakistan or not is a personal one for every player. Whether a player wants to participate in white-ball or red-ball cricket is entirely their choice, and selection will be based on their performance in the respective format.
Inzamam concluded by saying that the selection committee will evaluate a player’s performance and determine if there is a need for them in the team when making selections.
