The National T20 Cup will be played at the Pindi Cricket Stadium from September 1 to 15 with the qualifying round being held from Sept 1 to 5 while the main event will start from Sept 8.
A Rawalpindi Region official said that Amir, who was banned from the international cricket for a period of five years, was all set to make his comeback in the international cricket very soon with his ban ending in September.
He said the national team already lacked quality pace bowlers and his inclusion would help the bowling department perform well. “The PCB is keeping an eye on performance of Amir who is expected to get nod for international cricket very soon,” he said.
The official further said Amir would be representing Rawalpindi Rams in the National T20 and the region will also monitor his bowling.
“We have high hopes from the pacer and believe he will surely get a chance in the national squad before the end of this year,” he remarked.
He further added, “As many as 16 teams will take part in the event providing the selectors an opportunity to witness performance of other players. “The selectors will also be watching the performance of several other young as well as senior players participating in the event.”
