Karachi: Keeping a close watch on Mohammad Amir’s possible return to international cricket, Pakistan head coach Waqar Younis has stopped the left-arm pacer from appearing in the fresh round of domestic cricket in order to personally oversee his progress.
Amir was told to reach Lahore to attend the short conditioning camp beginning today instead of going to Karachi to play the latest super eight round of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy first class tourney.
"The Pakistan cricket board allowed all the other players named for the camp to represent their teams in this round only Amir has been held back.
We wrote a letter seeking a reason for holding him back and were told Waqar wants to spend time with him,” the manager of the Sui Southern Gas team for whom Amir plays, told PTI.
