BREAKING NEWS: Amir included in Pakistan squad for New Zealand matches


Mohammad Amir is set to make his return for Pakistan after being included in their squad for the Twenty20 and one-day international matches against New Zealand following a ban.

Amir has been in the international wilderness since being suspended for five years by the International Cricket Council in 2011 after bowling what was deemed as deliberate no-balls in a Test with England.

However, he was named in Pakistan's 26-man training squad on Friday ahead of the tour of New Zealand and - subject to being granted a visa - is in line to make his comeback.
