Pakistani speedster Mohammad Amir has slammed the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after his name was included in the list of players who received domestic contracts for the upcoming season.
“If I’m not playing international cricket, then what’s the point of featuring in domestic cricket. They want to control me by offering this contract but that’s not going to happen. PCB should have contacted me before including my name in the domestic contracts list,” said Amir in a recent interview.
“They [PCB] have well-educated people in their ranks but they still behave like ignorants,” he added.
The 29-year-old also asked the PCB to give his contract to a young cricketer.
“The PCB should give my central contract to a young cricketer to help him and so that he can support his family,” he said.
Amir also stated that he is enjoying playing league cricket all over the world.
“Maybe they [PCB] haven’t accepted the fact that I have retired from international cricket, which is why they take such steps,” he said. “I am enjoying playing league cricket and spend the rest of the time with my family.”
Amir retired from international cricket in December last year due to reservations with Pakistan’s team management. He represented Pakistan in 36 Tests, 61 ODIs and 50 T20Is.
