Former pacer is included in A category
Former Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir has decided against signing the central contract for the upcoming domestic season.
Pakistan Cricket Board has included the 29-year-old in A category of the contract, where each player will receive RS 185,000 per month.
“I am not going to sign the central contract,” Amir told SAMAA. “PCB should have contacted me before including my name in the domestic contracts list.”
According to him, by offering the contract, the board wants to control him. “By taking RS 185,000, I don’t want to face board’s restrictions,” he added.
The left-arm pacer said that he hasn’t made the decision to play the domestic season. He suggested that the board should offer the contract to a young cricketer so that he can support his family.
Moreover, the Karachi Kings pacer said that he will spend some time with the family in England after the conclusion of the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
When asked about his retirement from international cricket, he said that he will make the decision after assessing the new management.
Amir has represented Pakistan in 36 Tests, 61 ODIs and 50 T20Is, where he claimed over 250 wickets.
