Muhammad Amir To Play For Essex

Mohammad Amir, the 24-year old left-arm seamer from Pakistan, will play for the Essex County Cricket Club in the latter half of the 2017 season and will participate in both the County Championship and the Natwest T20 Blast.

The ICC Champions Trophy is set to be played in 2017, and hence Amir, expected to be a part of Pakistan’s One Day International (ODI) side, will be available for selection only after June 19.

Chris Silverwood, Essex’s head coach, expressed glee at having Amir in the side: “We are thrilled that Mohammad has decided to join us for half of the 2017 campaign. He showed a real desire to be a part of the club and the fact we have him for two competitions is a real bonus.”

“He is still only young but has proved himself at international level already, so it is a real coup to get this signing completed,” he added.

Amir mirrored Silverwood’s sentiments and was chuffed to bits on signing the contract. “I am very excited about becoming part of the Essex family. Chris Silverwood and Ronnie Irani have both been very supportive over the summer. I’m hoping I can carry on Essexs success this season and achieve more for the club in 2017,” he said.

Pakistan Fans will be delighted to see him perform in england.
