Mohammad Amir is a ‘debutant’ again with comeback for Pakistan, envisions T20 World Cup glory

Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir is experiencing a sense of renewal as he rejoins the Pakistan national team after a lengthy absence

Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir is back in the national team fold after a 1327-day long hiatus. Selected for the ongoing T20I series against New Zealand, Amir expressed his excitement at returning to international cricket, comparing it to a debut.

In a video uploaded by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Amir expressed his emotions about rejoining the team. “This is a very special moment for me,” he said. “I am coming back for Pakistan after almost four years.” Despite his experience and past international appearances, Amir emphasized the unparalleled feeling of representing his country. “Honestly, it feels like it is my debut series,” he revealed. “Because whenever you wear your country’s star on your chest, that feels really different and you can’t explain it to be honest.

Mohammed Amir sets his sights on the T20 World Cup

Back in the national setup, Amir is laser-focused on one goal – winning the upcoming T20 World Cup for the Men in Green. Currently in the team for New Zealand T20Is, the 32-year-old is more or less likely to travel to the West Indies and USA for the mega event as well.

In the interview with PCB, Amir made his intentions clear and acknowledge the management’s vision. “There is a short-term goal and that is the T20 World Cup,” Amir said.

That is the biggest goal right now for Pakistan.” This hunger for World Cup glory stems from Pakistan’s recent near misses. They were heartbreakingly close in the 2022 edition, losing the final to England. The disappointment even endured in 2021 with a close semi-final defeat to Australia.

Amir expressed his determination to help Pakistan finally cross that elusive “finishing line.” “It will be the biggest achievement for me to be part of the World Cup winning team,” he declared. Beyond his ambition, Amir brings improved fitness to the table. “I am feeling even fitter as compared to when I played in 2019,” he revealed. This enhanced physical condition, coupled with his experience and skill, could prove to be a valuable asset for Pakistan’s World Cup campaign.

With Amir’s return bolstering the bowling attack alongside young guns Shaheen Afridi and Naseem Shah, Pakistan has a potent pace unit with the potential to dominate.
