The former Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir has been signed by the Gloucestershire County Club for the County Championship 2022. He has been brought as a replacement for his countryman, Naseem Shah, who got injured against Northamptonshire in the opening round of the season before suffering a shoulder injury which rendered him unavailable for their fixture against Yorkshire last week.
The young pacer's injury set him unavailable for four next games and the club opted for the left-armed pacer, Amir, who has retired from international cricket. Amir will render his services to the Gloucestershire County Club in the subsequent three matches. Notably, the ex-Pakistani cricketer reached England on 21st April and joined the team in Manchester.
It must be noted Amir played his last red-ball match in the County Championship 2019 for Essex club. He retired from international Test cricket at first and stepped back from all forms of international cricket later in a shorter course developing personal issues with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Already being a part of franchise cricket after retiring, he is looking to make a comeback in first-class cricket.
Concerning Naseem, he will wind up his rehabilitation process in Bristol. The 19-year old will be available for selection in the T20 Blast match versus Middlesex on May 26th.
