Amir⚡ Set for England After Being Granted Visa👍

Pakistan will not have to wait long to be reunited with Mohammad Amir, after the fast bowler's UK visa was issued on Tuesday. The PCB confirmed that Amir will fly out to join the rest of the squad - who flew earlier this week - on Wednesday morning. That should place him in contention to play Pakistan's first game on the tour, a four-day game against Kent in Canterbury that starts on April 28.

It is not clear why Amir's visa was issued later than the rest of the squad's. Speculation centred on an application he has made for a longer-term UK visa, on the basis that he is married to a British citizen, but that was denied by the PCB.

He faced a similar delay when Pakistan toured England in 2016, and the PCB had to ultimately engage the ECB for support in the process. It could be linked to the time Amir spent in jail in the UK after he admitted his guilt in the spot-fixing scandal on the 2010 tour.
