Pakistan’s left-arm pace sensation, Mohammad Amir is almost certain to play county cricket. A few counties are interested in signing him, however, Essex is probably the favourite to take him onboard.
The 24-year old fast bowler made his comeback in test cricket at Lord’s against England after serving the five years ban imposed by the ICC following spot fixing act at the same ground of Lord’s.
Amir seems keen to play domestic cricket in England, however, there is a deal yet to be signed, but, Essex and a handful of other clubs are impressed with the young talent and want him in their ranks.
Mohammad Amir did not enjoy the kind of comeback in whites as it was expected from him, he took just ten wickets in the three tests against England so far. However, he has dismissed English openers five times in the series so far.
Pakistan has a busy schedule ahead with some tough tours and Champions Trophy in June next year, which means Amir will be occupied by the national duty.
However, if Essex is able to sign him, a handful of appearances for the side can make the season exciting as a whole.
