Karachi: Pakistan’s cricket chief denied on Saturday that Mohammad Amir is being fast-tracked back into international cricket after a five-year ban, saying he will be monitored “on and off the field” before his re-entry.
The 22-year-old was on Thursday cleared to play in the domestic cricket by the game’s apex body, International Cricket Council, bringing him a step closer to redemption for his part in one of the most scandalous episodes in modern cricket.
Amir was one of three Pakistani players banned from the game for at least five years for arranging no-balls to order in a Test against England at Lord’s in 2010.
