Pakistan’s banned cricketer Mohammad Amir is close to getting reprieve to appear in domestic matches as changes are being made in the ICC Anti-Corruption Code, which could help him resurrect his career.
The work on the drafting of the new code has substantially progressed with a draft clause inserted, permitting a banned player to be involved in domestic matches prior to the end of his suspension period.
The Anti-Corruption Code will now be placed before the ICC for approval soon after which the PCB will be in a position to make an application for Amir.
“The progress on ICC’s amendments in the Anti-Corruption Code is encouraging and is yet another step closer to the early entry of Mohammad Amir in cricket,” said PCB Chairman Najam Sethi.
