Pakistan left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir has decided to quit international cricket after being dropped from the New Zealand tour.

According to Pakistan media reports Amir has said that he will formally announce retirement from international cricket in a couple of days. The 28-year-old said he can work no longer with the current management.

The left-armer, who arrived at the scene in a T20I game against England in June 2009, participated in 147 international fixtures in which he took 259 wickets.

He was part of the Pakistan squad which won the 2009 World T20I. However, his career faced a downward spiral when he was banned for five years over his involvement in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal during the tour of England in 2010.

Upon his return to the international side, Amir played a leading role in Pakistan’s formidable pace attack and helped the side won its maiden International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy title back in 2017.

The pacer retired from Test cricket citing workload reasons and has been participating in limited-overs format. The decision also came under strict criticism by several former players and legends.
