Back with a bang

Amazing news for all Amir fans. Muhammad Amir took seven wickets playing a domestic game in Multan. This game is considered to be a part of Amir’s rehabiliation process. Amir is believed to be very excited and happy with his progress so far. The 23 year old fast bowler feels relieved to be free of all charges and his happiness after his first return match was understandable.

Mohammad Amir playing for Sui

 

Amir was playing for Sui Southern Gas Corporation in the first round, which was the qualifying round. Amir picked up 7 wickets for 61 runs in the second innings to complete a stunning 10 wicket haul against the State Bank of Pakistan. Amir now stands with 17 wickets in his pocket in just 2 games, after his 7 wicket reign in the first match.

“I am enjoying my bowling and am satisfied with my progress. I am feeling better day by day”

Amir believes his primary focus and attention is on regaining his full fitness back. He also believes that he will not think about International cricket for now, as he wants to do well in the domestic games to gain momentum.

“My focus is on domestic matches and I want my team (Sui Southern Gas) to qualify for the latter stages of the tournament”.

Sui are to win another game and they will qualify for the next round of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, which is Pakistan’s premier first class domestic competition. Before Amir was banned alongside Asif and Salman in 2010, he was regarded as the hottest fast bowling figure in the world by the former World Cup winning captain Imran Khan. According to Khan, had Amir not been involved in corruption, he would have broken all sorts of records by now.

The Pakistan Cricket Board made it clear since the ban of the trio was lifted, that each one of them would have to go through a very detailed and complicated rehabilitation routine. Only then will they be considered as possible options for the international scene. The rehabiliation process includes fitness programs, as well as social and charity works.
