Will Amir, and Shaheen play together at the T20 World Cup 2024?

Pakistan T20I captain Shaheen Shah Afridi recently held an X, formerly Twitter, space where he spoke to fans and answered their questions.

Afridi is currently representing IlT20 side Desert Vipers along with his current and former teammates, one of whom is Mohammad Amir, who retired from Pakistan in 2020.

The left-arm fast bowler was asked if he would relish the prospect of bowling alongside Amir in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. Afridi confirmed that he will ask Amir if he is ready to return to the team.

“I will talk to Mohammad Amir if he is available to come back to Pakistan once again. Aamir and I bowled together after almost 5 years. It was a great experience bowling with him, we had a great partnership,” Afridi said at Xspace.

In 2020, Amir retired from international cricket after accusing head coach Misbah-ul-Haq, and bowling coach Waqar Younis of favoritism and unfairness.

Just before the start of the ICC World Cup 2023, when Pakistani fast bowler Naseem Shah was injured, fans on social media asked Amir to withdraw his retirement, but the left-armer refused and said that he would retire from international cricket. have “moved on”.

“At this point, I have moved on. I have to do different things in my life,” Aamir said earlier in a presser.

“Three years is a long time outside the international system, if you look at the system in Pakistan at the moment, it is changing every month, so you never know what is coming.

For me, this discussion is closed. After being out for three years, I don’t think it would be a wise decision for me to come back. For now, at least. I don’t know what is going to occur in the following few years,” he concluded.

Although he has consistently denied a return to the Pakistan cricket team, Amir’s return cannot be ruled out given his excellent relationship with Shaheen Afridi and the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Amir represented Pakistan in 36 Tests, 61 ODIs and 50 T20Is. He last played an international match in 2020. The fast bowler was also part of the Pakistan team when they won the ICC T20 World Cup 2009 and the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.

His Champions Trophy 2017 final spell saw Pakistan win its first title in the eight-team tournament.
