Mohammad Amir will be unavailable for the three-match Twenty20 International series against Pakistan in Lahore, captain Sarfraz Ahmed confirmed on Monday (September 11). The pacer is in the United Kingdom with his wife as they are expecting their first child.
Sohail Khan, who had already joined the squad as cover, will replace Amir. “There is no change of plan as we had already named a 16-man squad with Sohail Khan as an extra bowler with Amir expecting his first baby,” Sarfraz said. “Unfortunately he isn’t available, but we have full options available.”
