Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir finds himself in the spotlight once again, this time for suspending his contract with betting company Wolf777 following a stern warning from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) regarding his association with surrogate betting promotions.

Amir’s decision to terminate the contract comes after the PCB cautioned him against engaging in promotional activities for betting companies, citing a ban on such endorsements.

Although Amir clarified that the contract was signed prior to his retirement reversal, he assured the board that his images would not be used for promotional purposes moving forward.

The development comes amidst criticism aimed at Amir after he was seen promoting the betting company on social media platforms. Sources reveal that Amir’s one-year contract with the betting entity, valued at Rs12.5 million, encompassed 60 social media posts.


The 31-year-old left-arm bowler, who faced a five-year ban from international cricket in 2010 due to his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal, made a triumphant return to the sport in 2016.

Notably, Mohammad Amir played a pivotal role in Pakistan’s victory in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017, where the team secured a resounding win against arch-rivals India in the final.

Following his retirement announcement in December 2020, citing mental anguish and management issues, Amir made a surprising comeback ahead of the series against New Zealand and was included in the national squad.

With a decorated international record comprising 36 Tests, 61 One-Day Internationals, and 50 T20s for Pakistan, Amir’s presence in the squad adds depth and experience to the team’s bowling arsenal.
