Mohammad Amir, the Pakistani cricketer who made a comeback to international cricket after retiring in 2020, has expressed uncertainty about repeating past behaviour. Amir, along with Mohammad Asif and Salman Butt, was banned for involvement in the spot-fixing scandal during the 2010 series against England.

In the current ongoing series against New Zealand, Amir returned to the international arena, featuring in the five-match T20I series at home. When questioned about the possibility of repeating past mistakes, he candidly admitted,

“No one could guarantee that. To err is human as I am not in a position to guarantee anything like that. We can only try and that is in my power.”

Despite Amir’s return, Pakistan faced a setback as they lost the third T20I to New Zealand at Rawalpindi on April 21. The series is now tied 1-1 after the first match was spoiled by rain, with only two balls bowled. Despite New Zealand sending a depleted squad, Pakistan, boasting a lethal pace attack including Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah, and Amir, couldn’t defend their total of 179 runs.

As Pakistan looks ahead to the remaining matches in the series, they will aim to regroup and put up a stronger performance to secure victory against New Zealand.
