Mohammad Amir Set to Return to England’s T20 Blast This Year

For the 2nd half of the upcoming T20 Blast tournament, Mohammad Amir was signed by English County, Kent.

He is 29 and has already secured the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and T20 Blast and a running berth in 2020 in the first Lanka Premier League. In 2010, he is one of the world's first limited overall bowlers (LPL).

Before retirement from all formats of international cricket in 2020, the left-arm seamer won both the T20 World Cup and the ICC Champions Trophy with Pakistan, taking 220 wickets for the 190 T20 matches, and bowling on average of 22.50.

Kent Spitfire will have the chance to participate in Knockout stages, if Kent qualifies, for up to seven group stage games. Amir's exact date of arrival will depend on the progress of Karachi Kings in PSL this year and on any necessary quarantine time upon arrival in the United Kingdom.

His first match with Kent Spitfire was a return to Chelmsford, where his fight with Essex Eagles was the Battle of the Bridge on June 25th.

Amir said, "I am excited to join a Kent team full of potential," while joining Kent Spitfires for Blasts.

"I have liked playing in Canterbury, and this year I hope I can help Kent win a trophy."

Paul Downton, Cricket's director, said: "We are very pleased that an Amir player has decided to join us for the next stages of this year's T20 Blast."

"His expertise and experience will be an invaluable contribution to our bowling attack, and I am certain that our members and supporters are glad to introduce Amir into the club."
