Wasim Khan, the CEO of the Pakistan Cricket Board, stated on Saturday that seasoned left-arm bowler Mohammad Amir might still play for the national team.

The attempts are underway to bring him and the coaches, notably head coach Misbah-ul-Haq, closer together.

Khan revealed that Amir had met him in the United Kingdom and expressed his dissatisfaction with the team’s administration.

“I also made it clear to him that the path he adopted was not right as a senior player,” he said on the Cricket Baaz channel on YouTube.

“I think Amir is a valuable player for us even now and we will now make efforts to bring about rapprochement between him and the coaches.”

Babar Azam has stated that he is willing to speak with Amir about his concerns.

Khan stated that once that conversation takes place, the PCB will bring the two parties together to resolve the issue.

When asked if Amir would be for the World T20 this year, Khan was unable to provide a time frame.

Amir, 29, announced his retirement from international cricket in December after clashing with Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis, the coaching combo.

Misbah and bowling coach Waqar have not been fair to Amir, and he has stated that he will not be available for selection till they are in command.

The left-arm bowler has agreed to play for Barbados in the Caribbean Premier League.

From June 9, he will be playing for the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League matches in Abu Dhabi.
