Amir focused on domestic cricket performance “to woo selectors”

LAHORE: Pakistan fast bowler Muhammad Amir says his utmost priority at the moment is domestic cricket, which may help him get into rhythm to feature again in the international cricket.

In an interview to website PakPassion, Amir said he could not currently think about playing international cricket. I am just focused to my domestic form and rest lies with the selectors, he told.

Recalling his recent domestic performance that earned him considerable attentions of the fans, he said “I’m really satisfied with my seven wickets against ZTBL in my first four-day match after my ban”. As you will have seen in the tournament in Rawalpindi my pace is increasing and my confidence is higher now so the signs are very good,” he said.

He was of the view that four-day games would be an important assessment of fitness and strength for a player.

While the ICC’s ban officially ended on September 1, Amir was allowed to return to domestic cricket after the PCB in January 2015 give him the go-ahead to feature in domestic cricket. He made a return to competitive cricket with a Grade-2 match in March, before representing Rawalpindi Rams in the Haier Super8 T20 Cup. This season, he played five matches for Rawalpindi Region in the Haier Mobile T20 Cup, claiming five wickets at an economy rate of 6.70. In a recent Quaid-e-Azam qualifying match, Amir took seven wickets for Sui Southern Gas Company, including a five-for, against Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited.
