Left-arm pacer couldnâ€™t leave with the team due to visa issues
Pakistan left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir has been granted the visa to travel to UK and will leave on Wednesday for the tour of Ireland and England.
The Men in Green under the leadership of captain Sarfraz Ahmed left for the tour early morning on Monday from Lahore, but the 26-year-old couldn’t join them because of visa issues.
Sources confirmed that Amir has applied for the UK citizenship because of which his visa was not issued on time.
Amir has represented Pakistan in 30 matches in the longest format of the game, where he has claimed 95 wickets at an average of 32.87 and a strike-rate of 67.5.
Pakistan will play one Test against Ireland and two against Joe Root’s England on the tour, which will start from May 11.
