Mohammad Amir retired in 2020 due to a dispute with PCB.
PCB Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq says doors are open for Amir’s return.
Players must perform well in domestic cricket to be considered for the national team.
Mohammad Amir retired from international cricket in 2020 after a dispute with PCB authorities, but the cricketing organization has since made it clear that it has not “closed the doors” for him.
“Everyone is aware that Amir is a very good cricketer. He took retirement. But if he wants to play for Pakistan, then the doors are open for everyone,” Pakistan Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said in a presser Friday.
Players were told by the head selector that they had to compete well in their home leagues if they wanted to be selected in the national team.
Haq stated that no player is turned away by the cricket board or the selection committee.
“If any player wants to represent Pakistan, they should perform in first class cricket. If they perform in it, they will be considered regardless of who they are, even Mohammad Amir.”
A 15-man squad for the forthcoming ICC Men’s World Cup 2023 was unveiled during the chief selector’s news conference in Lahore.
