Following the shock retirement of Mohammad Amir, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday released a statement confirming the retirement from international cricket.

PCB chief executive, Wasim Khan then contacted the pacer about the matter. Mohammad Amir cleared it that he has no desire to play international cricket for Pakistan anymore and thus would not want to be considered for selection in the future. Amir was dropped from the T20 team for the tour of New Zealand.

“Pakistan Cricket Board chief executive Wasim Khan spoke with Mohammad Amir this afternoon following reports that the fast bowler had announced his retirement from international cricket. The 29-year-old confirmed to the PCB chief executive that he has no desires or intensions of playing international cricket and as such, he should not be considered for future international matches,” said a statement by the PCB.

This is a personal decision of Mohammad Amir, which the PCB respects, and as such, will not make any further comment on this matter at this stage,” it added.

Earlier in the day, the Pakistan left-arm quick bowler decided to quit international cricket after being dropped from the New Zealand tour.

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.
