Key things to look at are, he was very young 18 years old, comes from a poor background. He was away from home so the only people providing guidance would have been senior players. Unfortunately for Amir his captain Salman Butt, did not set a good example along with Mohammed Asif. I am sure at that age we can all say we made stupid mistakes that we regret. Unfortunately for Amir this mistake was made on an international scale. So I feel he has been punished enough and the PCB should hold a lot of the responsibility along with there coaching staff etc, as I feel they should provide more support for these young players. Amir will have this hanging over him for the rest of his playing career, so he has a tough road ahead. Personally I am glad to see him back, it would have been a great waste of talent if he was band for life.

With all due respect, Mohammad Amir was equally involved and he himself had direct interactions with bookmaker, Mazhar Majeed.

I am not proponent of Mohammad Amir's inclusion to the side, however, if he is to be selected then board has to be same with other two as well.

Just to reiterate, Amir first denied his involvement. It was until he knew there is no way out when he admitted.

As far talent, Mohammad Asif was a bigger and better talent than him.

Asif he was a bigger talent! (pun intended). At 10 years younger I would have expected a lot less, but Amir delivered just as well.

I agree with hanif. I regret alot of things i did when i was 18.. Being both illegal and legal. Lucky enough to get away without any repercussions

Are you suggesting that either

A) Kane Williamson is in on it?

Or

B) that amir is that good when he doesn't beat Williamson he's doing it on purpose??


As I can't for the life of me figure out how a bowler bowling well is being dodgy??
