His five-year ban expires next summer.
Mohammad Amir could make his return to cricket for Pakistan against England in 2015 after serving a five-year ban for match-fixing, reports the Telegraph.
Amir was part of the spot-fixing scandal of the Lord’s Test with the Three Lions back in 2010 and has spent time in prison as a result.
The bowler has since shown remorse after readily admitting his involvement and has also worked with the ICC’s anti-corruption department.
This was in stark contrast to the other duo involved – Salman Butt and Mohammed Asif – who continued to protest their innocence despite being found guilty in a court of law.
The Pakistani Cricket Board campaigned on behalf of the player to be able to play domestic cricket before his ban ends and this has been granted to the 22-year-old, who start rebuilding his match fitness this year.
Amir’s ban will expire a month before the English travel to the UAE for a tour that contains three Tests, five one-day internationals and one Twenty20 fixture.
Before being banned the youngster was recognised as one of the most exciting talents in world cricket and at still such a young age he could still have a successful career in the sport.
