Former Pakistan fast bowler, Mohammad Amir might be getting a chance to play in the next season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. He announced his retirement from international cricket in December 2020 announcing that he will not play for Pakistan in the future. Recently he has applied for British citizenship. However, Pakistan cricketers are not allowed to play in IPL due to the tense political relations between India and Pakistan.

If Mohammad Amir manages to get British Citizenship, he will be eligible to play in the IPL 2022. In the past, former Pakistan cricketer Azhar Mahmood was able to play in IPL as he registered for the tournament as a British citizen. However, Amir will find it hard to make it to IPL 2022 due to several reasons. Here are 5 reasons which will make it difficult for Mohammad Amir to play in IPL 2022.

#1 Relations of BCCI And PCB

BCCI (Board Of Control For Cricket in India) and PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) haven’t managed to organized a bilateral series for almost 9 years now. India and Pakistan last faced each other in a bilateral series in 2012-13 and since then, BCCI has cut bilateral cricket relations with PCB due to the political tensions between the neighbors. BCCI has also barred Pakistan cricketers from playing in the IPL and if the Indian board BCCI allows Mohammad Amir in IPL, it will create a strenuous relation between BCCI and PCB.

#2 British Citizenship

The 29-year-old has also asserted that he has 7-8 years of more cricket left in him and he is yet to get British Citizenship. A person can only be eligible for British Citizenship after he has completed his ILR period of at least one year. Therefore, at present, there is uncertainty about Amir getting British Citizenship before IPL 2022. Moreover, IPL 2022 will also witness a mega auction that will happen one or two months ahead of IPL 2022. Hence, he might not get his British Citizenship on time and take part in IPL 2022.

#3 BCCI And Defamed Players

Mohammad Amir had banned from international cricket for five years due to the spot-fixing charges in August 2010 when he bowled two deliberate no-balls in a match against England. BCCI has a very strict policy against defamed cricketers. In the past two players who are found to be involved in spot-fixing and match-fixing have never made a comeback to Indian cricket. Since Mohammad Amir has also been involved in spot-fixing, there are very slim chances of him playing in IPL.

#4 Poor Performances

Ever since he has made a comeback to international cricket, Mohammad Amir has not shown impressive performance. In 2019, he played 2 Tests, 15 ODIs, and 7 T20Is, and scalped 8, 23, and 7 wickets respectively. After his comeback, he has played 32 T20I matches for Pakistan in which he picked 36 wickets. In 2020, he remained wicketless in the two T20I matches he played. Therefore, his stats might not tempt the IPL franchises and he will not be able to make it to the final list of IPL 2022 auction.

#5 Mohammed Amir and his Family

Recently, Mohammad Amir stated that he wants to prioritize his family over cricket. He had said that he wants to spend maximum time with his family in the United Kingdom. IPL is a long tournament where cricketers are bound to spend almost 2 months without their families. Therefore, Amir might not participate in IPL 2022 so as to spend time with his family members. He had also said that at the moment he is not thinking about participating in IPL 2022.

Former Pakistan fast bowler, Mohammad Amir might be getting a chance to play in the next season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. He announced his retirement from international cricket in December 2020 announcing that he will not play for Pakistan in the future. Recently he has applied for British citizenship.
