Mohammad Amir: Should Pakistani cricketers give tainted pacer another chance?

New Delhi: Even though he has served his ban as a result of being found guilty for spot-fixing, Pakistani pacer Mohammad Amir is yet to win the trust of his teammates.

In a new blow, Mohammad Hafeez and Azhar Ali on Friday snubbed a training camp due to Amir's presence.

Earlier, Hafeez had refused a lucrative offer from Chittagong Vikings to play in Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) as Amir had already been signed by the same team.

While the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has asked players to cooperate with Amir, it remains to be seen how long will it take for them to follow their board's instructions.

The 23-year-old seamer was implicated in a spot-fixing scandal in which it was alleged that he had bowled deliberate no-balls in a Test against England.

Following investigations, the ICC handed him a five-year ban in February 2011. He pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to six months in prison at Southwark Crown Court.
