10. Amir’s selection in national training camp:
The Pakistani pacer, Mohammad Amir’s call up in the national training camp before the tour of New Zealand created a stir in the Pakistan cricket. The Pakistani ODI skipper, Azhar Ali and former T20I skipper, Mohammad Hafeez refused to join the camp in the presence of the left-arm pacer. Even Azhar Ali threatened to quit the ODI captaincy and sent his resignation letter which was rejected by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Only somehow, the PCB was able to bring an end to this resistance by the Pakistani duo. It is notable that Amir’s five-year ban from international cricket on account of spot-fixing had expired in September this year after which there has been a divided opinion on his comeback in the national ranks.
