Karachi: Aug 20, 2014

Banned Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Aamer, frustrated at not being able to play cricket, has decided to try his luck in the film industry and agreed to do a film titled — Blind Love.

“Cricket remains my first love and passion, and whenever I am allowed to play I will be the first to grab the chance,” Aamer told PTI.

“But in the meantime I have become frustrated doing nothing and agreed to do this film in which my love interest will be from India,” he added.

According to Aamer, he agreed to do the film because he found the script interesting when the film’s producer narrated the story to him.

“It will be a while before the film goes on floor but I have given them my availability,” he said.

The left arm pacer’s cricket career came to a halt in September 2010 when he was suspended by the International Cricket Council for his role in spot fixing during the fourth Test against England at Lords. His teammates — Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt — were also suspended by the ICC.

In February, 2011 the anti-corruption tribunal also banned them for a minimum of five years for the offence.

Aamer said he was very hopeful of being able to play cricket again after the induction of Shaharyar Khan as the new Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

“Shaharyar sahib has given a very encouraging statement about me after taking charge and I am hopeful something definite will come out in October,” Aamer added.

The PCB has asked the ICC to allow Aamer to resume training at the National Cricket Academy and play domestic cricket before his ban ends. And a special committee formed by the ICC has already suggested amendments to the existing ICC anti-corruption laws, which will be ratified in October.

Under the new laws, the PCB is hopeful that Aamer will get a chance to resume playing and training before his ban officially ends sometime in August 2015.

Shaharyar also told reporters this week that he would also be looking at the cases of Salman Butt and Asif once their bans are completed.

“If these players complete their punishments we will see what can be done,” he said.
