In­ter­na­tional re­turn not on top of Amir's wish­list

The Pak Banker - - INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS/SPORTS -

Tainted left-arm fast bowler Mo­ham­mad Amir has put the prospect of a ' dream' in­ter­na­tional come­back on the back burner, vow­ing to put up a fight­ing per­for­mance in Pak­istan's premier first-class tour­na­ment in­stead.

The Quaid-e-Azam Tro­phy starts Septem­ber 17 and though the In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil (ICC) cleared the spot-fix­ing trio of Amir, Mo­ham­mad Asif and Sal­man Butt to play all forms of cricket af­ter their ban ends on Septem­ber 2, the 23-year-old left-arm pacer is not look­ing too far ahead. "I have started my train­ing again af­ter the in­jury which had put me on rest for al­most a month," Amir said in an in­ter­view to cricket.com.au. "I al­ways go step by step," he added. "I have not set any big goals. I fo­cus only on present. My cur­rent task is to do well in the com­ing Twenty20 cham­pi­onship and then in the qual­i­fy­ing round for the QEA Tro­phy." Amir is all set to fea­ture for his home town, Rawalpindi, in the T20s, while he would be fea­tur­ing for Sui South­ern Gas Com­pany (SSGC) in the Quaid-eAzam Tro­phy qual­i­fiers.
