Mohammad Amir will make an unexpected re-visitation of top of the line cricket subsequent to marking a transient arrangement to play for Gloucestershire in the County Championship.

Amir has not played a top of the line match since August 2019, when he played a Championship game for Essex a month after his retirement from Test cricket.

He will play three Championship games for Gloucestershire, supplanting Naseem Shah who has been precluded until the beginning of the T20 Blast because of a shoulder injury. He showed up in the UK on Thursday and has connected up with the crew in Manchester.

“The County Championship is an astonishing contest and I can hardly hold back to kick off Gloucestershire,” Amir said. “I love playing in English circumstances and I’m feeling far better, so I truly want to believe that I can perform well for the group.”

Steve Snell, Gloucestershire’s exhibition chief, said: “We are really glad to have marked a bowler of Amir’s type. We will unfortunately be without Naseem for half a month because of injury and keeping in mind that we assist him with returning to full wellness, Amir will give us quality and worldwide involvement with our crease assault for what is a solid first-division contest.

“Amir possesses all the necessary qualities impeccably for what we want and we’re sure he will be an incredible expansion to the crew for those three matches. He has shown his yearning and want to make vital commitments during his experience with us and we anticipate causing him to feel appreciated in Bristol with Gloucestershire.”
