PAK vs IRE: Mohammad Amir is unlikely to play in the Ireland series

Pakistan Men’s National Cricket Team’s fast bowler Mohammad Amir has not travelled with the Men in Green’s squad for the tour of Ireland which left for Dublin on Tuesday as he’s facing visa issues.

The 32 year old made his return to International Cricket in a home T20i series against New Zealand this year after a span of four long years. He played four games against the Kiwis and he even found a place in the Shaheens squad for the Ireland and England series.

Mohammad Amir is a permanent United Kingdom resident having married a British girl – Narjis Khatun. He has travelled to Ireland before in 2018 but he has not received the Irish visa this year.

The PCB is in constant contact with Cricket Ireland as they believe that it was the responsibility of the hosts Cricket Board to ensure that Pakistan’s players got their visa’s issued on time. The visa of the Men in Green’s batting coach Mohammad Yousuf got delayed as well but he received the visa in time and travelled with the squad as per schedule.

Both Amir and PCB are waiting for his visa to get approved while the Pakistani squad arrived in Dublin today. They are going to play three T20 internationals against the Irish.

The Babar Azam-led team will travel to England for a four match T20i series after the conclusion of the Ireland series ahead of the 2024 T20 World Cup.
