Meanwhile, Amir had come up with a shocking announcement of his Test retirement. Amir played 36 Test matches and scalped 119 wickets in his Test career. The gun fast bowler is only 27 years of age and he has got a lot of cricket left in him. Thus, it was a surprise that Amir called time on his Test career and he was also criticised by former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar.

“He is clearly planning to obtain a British passport and permanently settle down in England in future. With a spouse visa, he can work freely and enjoy other benefits as a permanent resident of the UK which is why he is planning to also purchase a house in England,” a source quoted as saying by India Today.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s famous journalist Saj Sadiq went on to put his weight behind Mohammad Amir for the move to get a British passport.

The post read as, “Don’t understand why some are making a big deal of Mohammad Amir applying for a British passport. He’s entitled to apply for it and it doesn’t mean that he will stop playing for Pakistan #Cricket”.

On the other hand, Mohammad Amir had liked a controversial tweet which said that Amir should leave the terrorist country.
