Younis backs Amir

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan coach Waqar Younis backs Mohammad Amir’s return to international cricket after serving a five-year suspension for spot-fixing. Amir was allowed last January to play domestic cricket, and has been free since September, when his international ban ended, to play anywhere. In Bangladesh’s Twenty20 league, the left-arm fast bowler has taken nine wickets in seven matches, and impressed Younis. Coach said the 23-year-old Amir “deserves to come back in the (cricketing) community and enhance his profession.”
