Mohammad Amir is a Pakistani cricketer who played for the Pakistan national cricket team between 2009 and 2020.
Amir retired from international cricket in December 2020.
Amir made his first-class debut in November 2008, and his first One-Day International and Test appearances in July 2009 in Sri Lanka at the age of 17.
He played his first international match during the 2009 ICC World Twenty20, where he played in every game, helping the national side win the tournament.
On 29 August 2010, he was arrested for spot-fixing and was given a five-year ban for bowling two deliberate no-balls.
Amir pleaded guilty on the verdict handed out by his prosecutor the International Cricket Council, and publicly asked for forgiveness.
In November 2011, Amir was convicted at Southwark Crown Court, along with Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, of conspiracy charges relating to spot-fixing and spent 3 months in prison.
He was given a five-year ban which was considered lenient, due to his juvenile age and confession, as compared to the other two conspirators who were given 7 and 10 years’ suspensions, effectively ending their careers.
