Fixing-Tainted Pak Pacer Faces Visa Issues For Travelling To This Country

Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir may not be able to leave with the national squad on Tuesday morning for the three-match T20 series in Ireland due to visa issues. A reliable source in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said that while the rest of the squad had got their visas for Ireland, there was a delay in Amir's case due to the jail term he served for the 2010 spot-fixing scandal. "Because of the spot-fixing case of 2010 and his subsequent jail term and ban his visa is still being processed," the source said.

He said a similar problem was faced by the PCB in 2018 as well when Pakistan went to Ireland and England but Amir was later issued a visa.

"We are hopeful he will get his visa in a day or two and he can join them later," he said.

Pakistan's first T20 international against Ireland is on May 10.
