Amir is knocking on the door of National side: Shahryar Khan

LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman on Thursday said left-arm fast-bowler Muhammad Amir has convinced everyone with his recent performances that he deserves a chance in the national side.“We are considering Amir for the national team. But we will call him and guide him to keep a modest and humble behaviour,” Shahryar told media in Lahore outside Gaddafi Stadium. “We will tell Amir that people will notice his behaviour. His performance has been very good recently. He is knocking on the door for a recall into the national side. There are small complications in his return but we will forge a policy to counter them.“If the chief selector names him in the team we will ask the Board of Governors to give him a positive nod.”Pakistan’s performance in colours in the recently concluded series against England in the UAE was also in question, and the PCB chairman said that selectors and coach did their best for team. “The selection committee and the head coach took the best possible decisions for the team. A few players were unfit so they could not perform as was expected of them,” added Shahryar.Meanwhile, commenting on the Pakistan-India series which is scheduled in December and will reportedly be played in Sri Lanka, Shahryar said now we just want a quick answer from India and are not bothered about a yes or no.
