Banned Mohammad Amir Set for First-Class Return
Disgraced Pakistan paceman Mohammad Amir could return to first-class cricket as early as next month, after a relaxation of the conditions of his ban for spot-fixing.
Amir, 22, was banned for five years along with Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif in a spot fixing case in England in 2010, and the trio were jailed by a UK court in 2011.
The paceman was interviewed in Lahore on Friday by the International Cricket Council, after the governing body revised the players' code of conduct in November last year, adding a provision that allows a banned player to play in domestic games a certain period prior to the end of the ban.
