He said that Fakhar Zaman is not in form these days but he is a big match player, I can’t close doors for anyone, domestic performance will be given the highest priority.
While talking about Muhammad Amir, Inzamam-ul-Haq said, “Everyone is aware that Amir is a very good cricketer. He took retirement. But if he wants to play for Pakistan, then the doors are open for everyone.”
The chief selector asked players if they wished to be included in the national team, they needed to perform well in the domestic leagues. He mentioned that neither the selection committee nor the cricket board closes doors for any player.
“If any player wants to represent Pakistan, they should perform in first-class cricket. If they perform in it, they will be considered regardless of who they are, even Mohammad Amir.”
Meanwhile, the chief selector also announced a 15-man squad for the upcoming ICC Men’s World Cup 2023. Fans were speculating on social media that since there have been changes in the PCB’s top brass, Amir might return to represent the team, but he was not included in the squad.
