Karachi: Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Aamer believes ‘English conditions are lucky for him’ as he aims to erase his sordid past when he will play in the first of the four-match Test series against Alastair Cook‘s men in July at Lord’s. The 24-year-old, who served a prison sentence in the UK and a five-year suspension for his role in the 2010 spot-fixing case, had earlier expressed that he wants to supersede his past with a better future when he will resume his Test career at Lord’s – the scene of the fixing scandal. Aamer was the second highest wicket-taker in the 2010 series, taking a total of 19 wickets and in the process became the youngest player to take 50 wickets in the longest format of the game.

Aamer, along with former skipper Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, were then found guilty of various offences of corrupt behaviour relating to the Lord’s Test between England and Pakistan in August 2010 by the independent Anti-Corruption Tribunal in February 2011. Speaking about last month’s fitness programme at Pakistan Military Academy in Kakul, the left-hander said that it was a rigorous regime which would help eradicate the chances of sustaining injuries, the Dawn reported. He was also effusive in his praise for his newly appointed coach Mickey Arthur. According to Amir, the South African’s best quality is his ability to mingle with the players and motivate them. Besides four Tests, Pakistan will also play five One-Day Internationals and a T20I against England. Wahab Riaz: Mohammad Aamer like a son to senior Pakistan players
