In a surprise move, left-arm fast bowler, Mohammad Amir, has agreed to make himself available for the national team selection if there is new team management in place.
The 28-year-old had announced his retirement from international cricket last month after a dispute with the head coach, Misbah-ul-Haq, and bowling coach, Waqar Younis.
I would like to clarify that yes I will be available for Pakistan only once this management leaves. so please stop spreading fake news just to sell your story.

Former players, including Shoaib Akhtar, and Shahid Afridi, had regretted Amir’s decision and asked him to reconsider it. Akhtar, Afridi, and Inzamam-ul-Haq had urged Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) high-ups to speak to Amir and resolve the issue.
However, just a month after his announcement, the left-arm pacer has now hinted that he may come out of retirement if the coaching setup is replaced.
I will approach the board myself and tell them that I am available if there is new management in place. I don’t think that the issues with current management will be resolved now because the mindset doesn’t change in a day.
