Mohammad Amir, the left-arm fast bowler has decided to come out of international retirement in what comes as a pleasing development for Pakistan cricket. The 29-year-old pacer stunned the cricket world by announcing his international retirement last year.

The pacer clarified that he made the big decision because of his issues with the team management. After Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis stepped down from their posts on Monday, Mohammad Amir decided to make himself available for his country once again.
