Mohammad Amir is set to link up with the Pakistan team for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Ireland, albeit with a slight delay in his arrival.

Scheduled to touch down in Dublin on Friday (today), Amir will not be able to feature in the first T20I against Ireland due to his delayed arrival and travelling fatigue. However, he remains a valuable asset for the subsequent matches on Sunday and Tuesday.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed on Thursday evening about the arrival of Amir’s visa, thanks to the concerted efforts by PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi.


Anxiety loomed at PCB headquarters as Amir’s visa situation unfolded, necessitating active engagement with Cricket Ireland to expedite the process.

All players, including Amir, had promptly submitted their visa applications following the Kakul camp, yet his visa’s delayed arrival posed a logistical hurdle.

Notably, Mohammad Amir faced a similar situation during the tours of Ireland and England in 2018. Amir’s cricketing journey has been riddled with highs and lows, epitomized by his tumultuous past.


Following a five-year ban by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in a spot-fixing scandal in 2010, Amir embarked on a journey of redemption upon his return to international cricket in 2016.

His crowning moment came during the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, where his stellar performance played a pivotal role in Pakistan’s triumphant victory over arch-rivals India in the final.

However, amidst personal and professional tribulations, including a brief retirement in December 2020 citing mental torture, Amir’s recent comeback to international cricket signifies a renewed commitment to the sport he loves.
