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.
