Aamir’s domestic return depends on his team’s fate

Pakistan’s tainted left-arm pacer Muhammad Aamir will be able to resume his first-class cricket career this season if his team qualifies for the main rounds of the premier Quaid-e-Azam Trophy tournament.

Chief selector Haroon Rasheed said that although Aamir had been told to go through the reintegration and rehabilitation process designed for Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif but his case was different.

“This program does not allow these players to play any first class cricket 
<g data-gr-id="13">atleast</g> until February next year. But Aamir’s case is different from that of Butt and Asif,” he said.

“The International Cricket Council had allowed Aamir to resume playing cricket six months before the other two and he had already started going through the rehabilitation process of the PCB,” Haroon said.

Aamir, Butt and Asif all completed their five-year bans for <g data-gr-id="15">spot fixing</g> last month and were cleared by the ICC to resume cricket but the PCB has put on hold an immediate comeback for former Test captain Butt and Asif.
