Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir is facing a visa delay for the Ireland tour and therefore, will not be departing on time with the men’s team on Tuesday.

The Pakistan team is scheduled to leave for Dublin early on Tuesday morning at 1:30 AM without one vital member of the squad.

The 32-year-old’s departure has been delayed due to a hold-up in acquiring his visa for Ireland. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) remains hopeful that Amir will obtain his visa promptly.

Amir not a stranger to visa issues

This setback is not new to Amir, possibly connected to concerns stemming from his past involvement in spot-fixing, which led to a brief imprisonment in the UK.

This is not the initial instance Amir has encountered visa delays; a similar scenario arose during Pakistan’s preceding tour of Ireland and England in 2018, resulting in his later integration into the team.

Pakistan team itinerary

The Pakistan cricket team is going to Ireland to play a series of 3 T20Is. Amir has returned from international retirement for this series which will be Pakistan’s penultimate assignment before the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in June.

The Men in Green will face England in a series of 4 T20Is after the Irish. They will take on co-hosts United States of America in their first match at the World Cup in Dallas on June 6.
