Mohammad Amir, former Pakistan bowler, has criticized the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after his name was included in a list of players who won domestic contracts for the 2017 season.

The left-handed pitcher, who was entered into the A category, has turned down PCB's domestic contract.

“If I’m not playing international cricket, then what’s the point of featuring in domestic cricket. They want to control me by offering this contract but that’s not going to happen. PCB should have contacted me before including my name in the domestic contracts list,” said Amir.

“They [PCB] have well-educated people in their ranks but they still behave like ignorants,” he added.  

The 29-year-old asked PCB to give his contract to a young cricketer and also stated that he is enjoying playing league cricket all over the world.

“The PCB should give my central contract to a young cricketer to help him and so that he can support his family. Maybe they [PCB] haven’t accepted the fact that I have retired from international cricket, which is why they take such steps. I’m enjoying playing league cricket and spend the rest of the time with my family” he added.

Amir has retired from international cricket in December last year after reservations with Pakistan’s team management. He represented Pakistan in 36 Tests, 61 ODIs and 50 T20Is.he said.
