Mohammad Amir to return for T20 Blast

16 June 2022

Gloucestershire is pleased to announce that former Pakistan International bowler Mohammad Amir is to return to BS7.

The 30-year-old left-arm pace bowler will be available for selection for The Shire’s remaining T20 Vitality Blast matches and comes in as a replacement for fellow countryman Naseem Shah.

Amir is no stranger to T20 cricket having made 50 T20 appearances for Pakistan taking 59 wickets. He recently played for Galle Gladiators in the Lanka Premier League in Sri Lanka where he made six appearances and helped the side reach the final.

Steve Snell, Gloucestershire Cricket Performance Director, said: “We’re delighted to welcome back Mohammad to the squad. He’s a proven international performer and to have his experience available to us for the remainder of the Blast tournament will be invaluable. He has spent a lot of time with us this season and he knows the environment well, so for him to join us at this time will greatly help as we look to kick on for the second half of the T20 Blast campaign.” 

The Club is awaiting clearance for Mohammad to play from the Pakistan Cricket Board, but this is expected imminently.
