Mohammad Amir’s international cricketing career was pretty decent but at the same time, he had a fair share of controversies. He operated as a left-arm paceman for the Pakistan cricket team in 36 Tests, 61 ODIs and 50 T20Is. Notably, he took 119 wickets in the longest format of the game including 4 fifers.
On the other hand, he took 81 wickets in the 50-over format including one fifer. The former Pakistani paceman took 59 wickets in 50 appearances in Twenty20 Internationals. He made up his mind to retire from international cricket in 2020 at the age of just 28 years.
His retirement decision took the cricket fraternity by surprise. Meanwhile, the 31-year-old is finding ways to obtain a British passport after he got hitched to Narjis Khan. It remains to be seen what the future holds in store for the veteran paceman.

The former Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir’s wife Narjis Khan is a British citizen and lawyer. Mohammad Amir shifted his base to the United Kingdom in 2020. Meanwhile, his passport accession will give him a window of opportunity to even represent the England cricket team in international cricket.
However, he clearly stated that he wouldn’t play for England since he has played for Pakistan. Meanwhile, he also opened up about the prospect of featuring in the lucrative IPL. Talking about the same, he echoed that he wanted to proceed step by step before adding that he is focused on getting his passport.
“First, I will not play for England. I have played for Pakistan. Second (talking of IPL), there is one more year to go. What will be the scenario at that time….I always say that I go step by step. We don’t know what will happen tomorrow and I start thinking about playing IPL in 2024. When I get my passport …whatever the best opportunity will be and what I will get…I will avail it,” Mohammad Amir was quoted as saying by ARY News.
