In a major blow to Pakistan, pacer Mohammad Amir has been ruled out of the ODI series against Sri Lanka due to a stress-related injury in the right …
Mohammad Amir will not play World Cup 2015. Mohammad Amir Pakistani Fast Bowler is very good bowler and Chief operating officer, Subhan Ahmed said that the PCB was not hopeful about the ICC clearing the pacer to play international cricket until he completed his five-year ban, which would end around August 2015.
Ahmad said: “What we have tried to convince the ICC to do is to allow him to be back into domestic cricket by reviewing his ban period so that he is ready when the times comes for him to play international cricket,”
Aamir told ‘Geo Super’ that he was not thinking about when exactly he would be able to resume playing cricket.
“For me that is not important now because I believe when God clears me to play then no one can stop me from playing. But for me it is good enough that the PCB Chairman has done so much to raise my issue in the ICC,” Aamir said.
Mohammad Amir born in 13, April in Gujjar Khan Punjab he current age is 22 year his bating style left hand bat five-year ban which will be ending on August 15, Aamir was 18 when the spot fixing scandal broke out while Pakistan was touring England in August, 2010 which eventually led to the imposement of bans on Aamir and his senior teammates — Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif, so Pakistan cricket board try best but they have no chance to played in World Cup 2015.
Disgraced Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir is set to have his five-year ban for spot-fixing reviewed by the International Cricket Council.
The ICC Board has confirmed it would look into the 21-year-old’s suspension “in due course” following its final meeting of the year in London at the weekend. Any decision on reducing Amir’s ban – which ends in 2015 – will not be made until the ICC has adopted its new anti-corruption code.
That document could be approved as early as the ICC Board’s next meeting in January, when Amir could be granted the chance to resume a career that was left in tatters after he was part of a plot to bowl no-balls during the 2010 Lord’s Test against England.
“The ICC Board was informed that a revised version of a more robust and strengthened ICC anti-corruption code will be submitted for discussion/approval at the January 2014 meeting,” read a statement.
“During the discussion, the matter of Mohammad Amir’s five-year ban also came up for discussion. The ICC board decided to review the matter in due course after the revised ICC anti-corruption code has been finalised and adopted.”
Amir has not played international cricket since the Lord’s Test and, after pleading guilty to the spot-fixing charges, spent three months in a British prison.
Reports in Pakistan before the ICC Board meeting had suggested that a plea would be made to allow Amir to make an early return to cricket.
It was suggested the left-armer might be allowed to resume training at the National Centre in Lahore, and even play domestic cricket before his ban ends. A five-member ICC sub-committee was set up in July to look into the possibility of relaxing Amir’s ban.
The ICC also confirmed it had agreed to delay the deadline for the completion of the stadiums for next year’s World Twenty20 in Bangladesh. A decision has now been pushed back to 30 November after a request by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), although the format and schedule for the tournament is due to be announced on 27 October.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) Board has concluded its two-day gathering in London and released details of the outcomes of their final meeting of the year.
Chief among the items discussed was an appeal by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on behalf of Mohammad Amir to reduce his five-year ban for spot-fixing.
However, the ICC Board confirmed that any review into Amir’s case will not be conducted until January, when a new, ‘more robust and strengthened’ ICC Anti-Corruption Code will be submitted for discussion and approval.
“During the discussion, the matter of Mohammad Amir’s five-year ban also came up for discussion. The ICC Board decided to review the matter in due course after the revised ICC Anti-Corruption Code has been finalised and adopted,” a statement confirmed.
The board also received an update on the investigations into the Bangladesh Premier League after which nine players were charged with corruption offences – seven for fixing and two for not reporting corrupt approaches.
Looking ahead to global tournaments including next year’s ICC World Twenty20 in Bangladesh, the board approved a request from the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to extend the deadline for stadium completion to 30th November.
The full format for the competition will be revealed on 27th October and the 2014 Under-19 World Cup will retain the same format as previous editions with 16 teams (10 Full Members and six qualifiers) competing in the United Arab Emirates.
There will also be a further boost for Afghanistan after an increase in their Targeted Assistance Performance Programme (TAPP) funding to $US 1.1 million was approved.
The ICC Board is made up of the chairman of president of the 10 Full Members as well as three elected Associate Member representative. The ICC President attends and chairs the meeting while the ICC Chief Executive and Vice-President are also present.

Fan favorites Mohammad Amir and Shahid Afridi ushered in twin good news to lift the moods of Pakistan Cricket.
Mohammad Amir, the banned Pakistan bowler, has been allowed by the International Cricket Council (ICC) to play domestic cricket with some conditions. The decision lifts his ban partially and offers a glimmer of hope for the young man. Amir, perhaps the only player to emerge with any amount of sympathy from the spot-fixing scandal will still be only 21 when his ban is completely done and the only one with realistic chances of redeeming his cricketing career. The other two, Salman Butt and Mohd. Asif have consistently denied their involvement (Butt confessed to his crime only recently), and would be past thirty years of age, presumably past their prime in cricketing terms. The news brings considerable joy and sympathy for Amir, who the fans always have seen as the young and impressionable victim of an unfortunate saga.
Amir was the first to confess about his mistake. Though there was no question of condoning the magnitude of his folly, it showed a certain degree of honesty and respect for the fans and the game. It also emerged later that he was driven to fixing by pressure-tactics by his captain and senior bowling partner, consequently leading to him fearing for his place in the national team. A report said that a five-member ICC sub-committee, set up after the 2013 annual conference to review the anti-corruption code, was formed last month to look into relaxing certain conditions of the five-year ban imposed on Amir after the spot-fixing scandal of 2010. Butt and Asif, who are still fighting to overturn their bans via filed petitions – have been afforded no such leeway.
Meanwhile, another crowd favorite Shahid Afridi is soon to lend his name to a movie! Known as much for his on-field exploits as his off-field charisma and movie-star looks – Afridi was first approached to play himself in the movie depicting his struggles and his fame. However the traditions of his tribe, hailing from the Afghan border, forbade him from acting. Humayun Saeed, a well known name in Pakistan film industry, then took the rights to use his name for the movie titled “Main Hoon Afridi” (I am Afridi). Afridi said he was happy with the product, and was hopeful of the movie delivering a positive message to the youth of the country.
The movie revolves around story of a young man (played by Karachi-based Noman Habib), who is an underdog with feeble means, but rises against all odds to become a popular cricketer. The star-studded line-up of actors also includes Nadeem Baig, Shafqat Cheema, Saeed himself and Mahnoor Baloch. Reportedly costing about $1 million, it would be one of the most expensive ventures of the industry and releases around Eid.
