Johannesburg: Pakistan head coach Waqar Younis has said that disgraced fast bowler Mohammad Amir deserves a second chance to make a comeback to the national squad. The 23-year-old bowler produced an impressive performance, taking nine wickets in seven matches in Bangladesh’s Twenty20 league after ending his five-year ban for spot-fixing in September. Former fast bowler Younis said that Amir deserves to come back in the cricketing community and enhance his profession, Sport24 reported. Amir, who is still undergoing the PCB rehabilitation program, had been banned alongwith Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif for their involvement in the infamous no-balls in the Lord’s Test against England in 2010.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and coach Waqar Younis today indicated that disgraced left-arm pacer Mohammad Aamer would soon be given a chance to play for the national team again. PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan told the media in Lahore that the Board was considering giving a comeback chance to Aamer, who served a five-year ban for spot-fixing which expired last September. “I think Aamer has done enough with his performances to warrant a place in the Pakistan team and we are considering him. But the final decision will be with the national selection committee,” Khan said
