Former Pakistan speedster Mohammad Amir is all set to make a comeback to first-class cricket after signing a short-term deal with Gloucestershire to play the County Championship.

Amir will be part of three Championship matches and he will be replacing Pakistan’s Naseem Shah in the team. Notably, Shah had suffered a severe shoulder injury and he has been ruled out until the start of the T20 Blast.

Gloucestershire’s performance director Steve Snell said that they are delighted to have roped in a bowler of Mohammad Amir’s calibre.

We are delighted to have signed a bowler of Amir’s calibre. We will sadly be without Naseem for a few weeks due to injury and while we help him get back to full fitness, Amir will provide us with quality and international experience in our seam attack for what is a strong first-division competition,” he said.
