Mohammed Hafeez and skipper Azhar Ali had refused to train with him but after Aamir spoke to players at a meeting, arranged by head coach Waqar Younis and chief selector Haroon Rasheed, the protesting cricketers finally relented.

Aamir offered to leave the camp and cricket if he said 'others felt that he did not deserve to play for Pakistan'.

"It was a very emotional moment because Amir was aware there was lot of tension in the camp because of him and at the meeting he broke down in tears. He said he was sorry for what had happened and again apologised to everyone at the meeting.

"He then said if anyone felt he didn't deserve a second chance he would leave the camp straightaway as he didn't want any more damage caused to the spirit and unity of Pakistan cricket," the source narrated.

Amir also apologised to Hafeez and Azhar and begged for their forgiveness.
