LAHORE – The banned fast bowler of Pakistan – Mohammad Amir – might get a chance to play domestic cricket as International Cricket Council (ICC) has changed its rules and regulations dealing with the matter.
According to the details global cricket governing body issued a communique on Monday from Dubai stating that from now onward national cricket boards will have the authority to allow banned players to play domestic cricket.
It is believed that Mohammad Amir will be benefited from this amendment as now he would return to domestic grounds from February 2015.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had made a special request to ICC to compensate 22-years-old Mohammad Amir. Not to forget that Mohammad Amir had accepted the spot-fixing charges and also completed the rehabilitation period under supervision. He was convicted along with former skipper Salman Butt and pacer Muhammad Asif.
The amended law will now let any player voluntarily leave playing cricket after being convicted under fixing charges. Moreover, it will also reallocate authority to domestic boards to deal with certain players being accused for match fixing.
