Aamir named in Pakistan Test team for England
However the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is still awaiting for Aamir’s visa approval from the UK High Commission.
24-year-old Aamir has made an impressive comeback in shorter formats and ironically his probable return to Test cricket will happen in the same country where he was arrested for indulging in spot-fixing along with Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif.
Chairman of selectors Inzamam ul Haq said that the board had given clearance to pick Aamir in the side as they had been told his visa would arrive on Monday.
“We were anxious for him as he can be a key bowler for us in England and I am sure he is strong enough to perform there despite the pressures he will feel on returning to England after the spot fixing scandal six years ago,” Inzamam said.
