Mohammad Amir who has turned himself into one of the most controversial ex-cricketers recently has been denied NOC for taking part in the 2022 Abu Dhabi T10 League.
The difference between pre and post-retirement Mohammad Amir
The left-arm fast bowler took his retirement from cricket in 2020. The news came as a shock to many because fans thought he could improve himself and come back to the team. However, Amir had different plans. He couldn’t get along with the coaches and the board so he said goodbye to Green Jersey.
After this, he has been openly critical of the selectors, coaches, players, Pakistan Cricket Board, and even the chairman himself.
The no-holding-back policy was adopted by the right-arm pace bowler
Amir was a guest on a TV show during the ICC T20 World Cup. The world saw a different side of him and numerous viewers termed him as toxic. Not only on TV but he didn’t hold back on the social media site Twitter too.
Some of these tweets both indirect and direct were an attack on the Board in one way or another.
Pakistan Cricket Board’s answer to Mohammad Amir in the form of denial to give him NOC
Mohammad Amir was made a part of the Bangla Tigers. Not only this but it is also reported that he was training alongside his teammates in the 2022 Abu Dhabi T10 League. But to his surprise, PCB did not issue him a NOC. A player would not be able to participate without this.
Numerous other Pakistani players are also taking part in the league and all of them have been granted permission. It is only Mohammad Amir who has been denied permission.
The ex-cricketers reaction
Amir expressed his emotions on this decision and he is “surprised” that this is how he is being treated.
To quote his exact words, they were: “Pakistan cricketers in the league have NOC. I am surprised that I am being treated like this.”
There are different opinions about whether this decision is right or not. But one thing is for sure Mohammad Amir fans are not content.
It still has not been revealed by PCB whether the decision is a reaction to the ex-cricketer’s recent remarks or not. Although it seems, it is.
