Mohammad Amir, a former Pakistani left-arm fast bowler, tested positive for the coronavirus. As a result, he will miss the T20 League, which is set to begin on November 19 in Abu Dhabi.
Amir, who was scheduled to play for the T10 franchise Bangla Tigers in the fifth season of the league, urged his fans to pray for his quick recovery in a tweet on his official handle.
In an interview with the media, he stated that his reports came back positive on November 8, after which he quarantined himself in a room.
He stated his plans, stating that he will travel from Lahore to Karachi on November 20 and then to Dubai on November 21.
“The weather in Lahore isn’t great these days, so I don’t want to put my health at risk,” Amir explained. “Alhamdulillah, the rest of the family members are fine,” he continued.
Amir had stepped down from his international career due to disagreements with his former head and bowling coaches, Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis.
The left-arm pacer has played 36 Tests, 61 ODIs, and 50 T20Is for Pakistan.
He has also represented Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). He was most recently with the Barbados Royals in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021.
