Pakistan T20I Captain Shaheen Afridi Opens Door for Ex-Teammate Mohammad Amir’s Return
Shaheen Afridi, the newly appointed T20I captain of Pakistan, has expressed his desire to explore the possibility of Mohammad Amir rejoining the national team. This comes after their recent reunion as teammates for the Desert Vipers in the ongoing ILT20 tournament.
During an X-Space session with Saya Corporation, Afridi revealed his intention to discuss a potential comeback with Amir. “I will talk to him if he’s open to representing Pakistan again,” Afridi stated. “Sharing the field with him after five years was fantastic, and our partnership worked well.”
Amir’s international career came to an abrupt end in 2020 when he announced his retirement, citing dissatisfaction with the team management under Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis. However, recent media interactions suggest he has moved on and prioritized other aspects of his life.
While Afridi’s interest sparks intriguing possibilities, the final decision ultimately rests with Amir. Whether he chooses to answer the call and reunite with his former teammate on the international stage remains to be seen. This potential development adds an exciting layer of speculation to the future of Pakistan’s cricketing landscape.
