Pakistan bowling coach Waqar Younis has talked about how the star pacer Mohammad Amir can make his international return as certain reports have emerged that Amir met with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief executive Wasim Khan ahead of the T20 World Cup.

Pakistan team is currently in England for a three-match ODI and T20I series, said he will need to bring about certain changes in the squad.

“No doubt he’s a fine cricketer, but if he doesn’t want to take his retirement back and impress selectors by playing cricket, it will be hard,” Younis told reporters via videoconference from England.

“It’s Pakistan cricket, it’s not yours or my cricket (team), you have to do the right things to play for your country. This is not a franchise cricket and one got to remember that.”

Younis said he was not aware about any meeting between Khan and Amir.

“To be honest I didn’t know about this (meeting). He (Khan) is head of the cricket and he has every right to meet whosoever he wants to see; he went there in his personal capacity and we didn’t know about it,” he added.

Amir took 259 wickets across 36 Tests, 61 one-day internationals and 50 T20s. Amir's last international was in August 2020 in a T20I against England.
