Pacer Mohammad Amir suffered a hamstring injury during the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) on Wednesday.

However, the speedster was hopeful that he will return to action soon.

“I will be fine InshaAllah, was on medication from last week because of stomach infection so it is just cramps. Hamstring hopefully will get better till Friday,” said Amir.

It must be noted that Amir had announced retirement in December 2020 after alleging the coaching panel of Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis of “ill-treatment”. He had cited “mental torture” by the management as the reason behind his decision. He also said that they have tried to spoil his image and it takes a lot of hard work to build your image.

Although, Waqar Younis denied it and said he was hurt by the comments of Amir.

Currently, the pacer is playing Caribbean Premier League for Jamaica Tallawahs where he has bagged 15 wickets in nine games.

Despite talks among the cricket fraternity, Amir has not shown any signs of coming out of retirement. He has repeatedly said that there are many pacers Pakistan currently has and he continues to focus on franchise leagues across the globe.
