Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir likely to get PCB central contract

New Delhi: Pakistan left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir who made a comeback to international cricket last month following a five-year ban for spot-fixing, is under consideration for a central contract.

The tainted pacer represented Pakistan in the recently concluded T20I and ODI series against New Zealand.

According to reports, sources in the Pakistan Cricket Board said that Shaharyar Khan will be deciding on whether Amir should be given a central contract later this week.

Sources added that the national selectors and team management believe that giving Amir a central contract will help the youngster's rehabilitation and reintegration process and enhance his credibility.

It is also reported that Amir was likely to be given category C in the central contracts which carries a monthly retainer of close to 200,000 rupees besides the usual match fees including other perks and bonuses.

Amir had a decent ODI outing against New Zealand picking five wickets in two matches although Pakistan lost the series. In the T20s Amir looked short on confidence and didn't excel much.

Earlier, Amir was given special relaxation by the ICC last April to resume playing domestic cricket before his spot fixing ban expired in September, 2015.

The youngster had impressed everyone with his consistency in domestic cricket and in the Bangladesh Premier League.
