“We are actively working with the relevant authorities to resolve the visa issue as soon as possible,” a PCB official stated. “Amir’s presence in the squad is crucial, and we are leaving no stone unturned to ensure his timely arrival in Ireland.”

The tour, scheduled to commence on May 18th, features two One Day Internationals and three T20 Internationals, providing Pakistan with an excellent opportunity to fine-tune their preparations ahead of the highly anticipated series against England.

Amir’s vast experience and proven track record in international cricket make him an invaluable asset to the Pakistani bowling attack. His ability to swing the new ball and provide breakthroughs in the early overs has been a hallmark of his successful career.

While the PCB remains optimistic about resolving the visa issue promptly, contingency plans are being discussed in case Amir’s participation becomes untenable. The team management may be forced to consider alternative options, potentially opening the door for emerging talents to showcase their skills on the international stage.

As the clock ticks down to the start of the Ireland tour, all eyes will be on the PCB’s efforts to resolve the visa delay and ensure that Mohammad Amir can join his teammates in their quest for victory on the Emerald Isle.
