Word has it that Mohammad Amir, yup, the same one who was suspended from cricket in 2010 because he cheated on our love in a floozy affair with a bookie, might return to international cricket very soon.
Yea, yea, the same cricketer! The one we adored. He was our star who got caught in a spot-fixing scandal. Yup, you’re right, he could’ve said no, but he got paid to do it. Obviously money trumps everything.
PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) chairman, Shahryar Khan said:
“We are considering Mohammad Amir, I have to call senior players and Amir and tell Amir that there should be modesty and humility in him. People will look to him. It looks like he has performed well over the last four-five months and is knocking on the door for us to consider him. If coach and selectors decide that he has to come, we will ask the board of governors before taking a decision on him.”
Amir has been active in domestic cricket and has been on his best behaviour. Since the past four or five months, his performance has been improving too. He’s even gotten his hair cut and dyed for us now! Don’t believe us? Check this out:
While this new Justin Bieber look-alike definitely has our lust – he lost our love a while ago.
He thought he could work real hard and get a makeover to seduce us into letting him play International cricket, but will his looks and performance absolve him from what he has done before?
In other countries when cricketers are found guilty of spot-fixing they are banned from the sport for LIFE. Meaning they will NEVER be able to play international cricket again! Cricketers such as:
1) Wessel Johannes “Hansie” Cronje from South Africa
2) Shanthakumaran Sreesanth from India
3) Lou Vincent from New Zealand
All these cricketers were banned for life for being involved in a spot fixing scandal.
Cricket legend Waqar Younis said:
“We had a detailed discussion on Mohammad Amir and we all are on same page, if he has served his punishment he deserves to come back in the community and enhance his profession. If he has been given permission to play in BPL there’s no wrong thing in it. He is in very good form. He has proved it. He has proved to the ICC, he has proved to the PCB that he is on the right track and it’s our responsibility that we should give him another opportunity.”
Mohammad Amir is just 23-years-old and is still very young. Yes, we can argue that he was young and impressionable, but we gave him everything one could ask for; love, success, fame, prosperity. We made him a star and he threw our into a trash-can. We want to love again, but we want to love a real star. Someone who will not cheat on us, or betray us. What precedent would we set if we brought him back into cricket?
He broke our heart once, what makes you think he won’t do it again?
