Mohammad Amir joins Kent for T20 Blast!

Kent has signed the 29-year-old left-arm bowler for the second half of this year’s T20 Blast campaign.

Former Pakistan fast pacer will join the Spitfires for up to seven group games.

As being reported, the date of Amir’s arrival will depend on Karachi Kings’ progression in the Pakistan Super League and quarantine requirements upon entry to the UK.

Kent director of cricket Paul Downton in comments shared on the website said, “We’re delighted that a player of Amir’s quality has agreed to join us for the later stages of the Blast this year.”

“His skill and experience will be an invaluable addition to our bowling attack,” he added.

Now the whole of Pakistan will be supporting KENT this year!

It was last year in December when fast bowler announced retirement from all forms of international cricket.

He has also helped Essex Eagles to win the T20 Blast title back in 2019.

Amir has represented Pakistan in 36 Tests, 61 one-day internationals, and 50 T20Is between 2009 and August last year.

He has taken 220 wickets at an average of 22.50 while appearing in 190 T20 matches.
