Muhammad Amir might not play in the Pakistan vs. Ireland T20 series because of visa problems

The participation of Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir in the upcoming three T20 matches against Ireland remains uncertain as he has yet to receive his visa.

Although the Pakistani team has already arrived in Ireland for the series commencing on May 10, Amir remains in Pakistan.

In the event that Amir does not obtain his visa by Thursday, he will have to join the team in Leeds on May 15 for the T20I series in England. It is noteworthy that Amir has previously participated in a Test match in Ireland back in 2018.

Currently, there is no backup player designated in case Amir is unable to participate in the matches, potentially impacting Pakistan’s preparations for the World Cup, given his crucial role in the squad.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is in regular communication with Cricket Ireland regarding Amir’s visa status. Despite all players, including Amir, having applied for visas immediately after the Kakul camp, the PCB is eagerly awaiting approval for Amir’s visa.
