Mohammad Amir hopes he will continue to play for the national team in the future.
Mohammad Amir, a left-arm pacer, says his decision to retire from international cricket was not “selfish.”
Due to disagreements with the current management of head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis, Mohammad Amir declared his decision not to represent the national team in December last year.
Amir was quoted in a Cricwick article as saying that he might return to the national team in the near future.
“My decision to retire was not based on self-interest,” he said. “At the moment, there is no possibility of me returning, but if things improve, who knows, maybe you will see me play for Pakistan again in the future.”
“Respect is the most important thing to me, and I felt like I wasn’t getting the respect I deserved, which is why I decided to retire. The people in charge of Pakistan cricket have jobs to do, commitments to fulfil, and decisions to make, while I have a future to pursue and look forward to.”
The 29-year-old has taken 259 wickets in 36 Tests, 61 One-Day Internationals, and 50 Twenty-20 Internationals for Pakistan.
