WEB DESK: Pakistan Cricket board(PCB) Chairman Shahryar Khan said that Amir is under consideration for a chance in Pakistan Vs New Zealand series which will be played in January 2016, Pakpassion.net reported.
PCB Chairman ruled out the possibility of Amir making a comeback in a doubtful India Vs Pakistan series which- if things go optimistic- will be in December.
“No he is not under consideration for the planned series against India as they are still things we would like to first discuss with him and sort out before allowing him back into the national side,” Khan said.
To a question whether Aamir could play in the limited over series in New Zealand in January, Khan said yes he was under consideration for the series.
“Yes, we are looking at him for this series and he could return to the national side on the tour.”
“We are getting feedback from them on his behavior and attitude and how he is doing. But it wouldn’t be right to say we will base our decision on his comeback on this feedback,” he said.
The PCB chief said there was a feeling that Aamir had completed his rehabilitation and reintegration process formulated by the board and since he was performing well he could be considered for selection to the Pakistan team. He said as for Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif as concerned, they had been permitted to play in the national one-day tournament early next year but their rehab and reintegration process was continuing.
“I think they will also be considered for a comeback but after they have first played in domestic first class cricket next year,” he said.
