    ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday, brushing aside speculations of pacer Muhammad Amir’s inclusion against Zimbabwe, said it has not even considered him to be a part of the national team.

    Talking to APP a PCB official said though Amir’s performance in domestic season was impressive but in order to make comeback to international cricket he has to prove in first class as well.

    “If Amir assures continuity in his form there were high chances of his reconsideration as a national team member,” he remarked.

    Speaking about the Pak-Zimbabwe series, starting from September 24, he said Zimbabwe had supported us in bad times when no other team was ready to play here.

    “We have high hopes from the team in the series against Zimbabwe,” he said.

    Pakistan’s rescheduled tour to Zimbabwe have 3 Twenty20 matches and 3 ODIs between September 24 to October 5.

    Fair. Can't expect him to simply walk into the side.

    Syk is right. Amir can't just walk back into the team, granted he is young at 23-24 but 5 years out of the game is very tough to cover on the basis of just a few T-20 and 4 days games. Must play a full domestic season at-least and must prove his form and fitness before being considered for selection.

    I say throw him straight into the team as soon as suspension ends. He had proved himself in the past and we all saw he still got it. Why waste any more time.

    He is gonna waste time and legs in domestic. He should be brought back asap. It's gonna take a couple of games and he's gonna find his groove again inshaAllah.

    Zimbabwe series would be ideal.

    no way, we need to be patient. Amir has a big name, but he has a long way to go before he can prove he is ready for international cricket again.

    You never know- another youngster might step up and take his place and put him way down the pecking order.

    For the non selection of sarfaraz? Isn't the coach also responsible for the selection of the 11?

    What harm would it do to play him against Zimbabwe with all due respect. The more playing time he gets on the international stage, the more likely he will regain his form. I would, without hesitation pick him once his ban has finished. If his performing on the domestic level, no point holding him back.
