Amir gets UK visa, likely to play at Lord’s once again
Pakistan’s left-arm pace sensation, Mohammad Amir has been granted UK visa and he is likely to make his test cricket comeback at the same venue where he bowled those two daunting no-balls.
Pakistan Cricket Board named Mohammad Amir in the test squad for England series, however, his selection was subjected to visa that he has now received.
The authorities called Amir at his home to communicate that he has been given the UK visa and he will be traveling with the team for the four-match test series.
The 24-year old made his international comeback against New Zealand earlier this year after serving his five-year ban that was slapped by the ICC for being involved in spot fixing.
Mohammad Amir’s class didn’t fade during his time away from cricket, he was a part of Pakistan’s Asia Cup and World T20 team as well.
The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has shown great support for the young pacer and have played a vital role in convincing UK authorities to treat his case as an exception and grant him the visa.
Pakistan will play the first test match of the series on July 14th, it will definitely be a big and testing day for the young Mohammad Amir.
