KARACHI -- Paceman Mohammad Amirs comeback after his ban for spot-fixing has been halted by a hamstring injury which will take up to three weeks to recover, his agent said Friday.
Amirs agent said his injury had been assessed by a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) medical panel.
The PCB said it asked for Amirs ban to be relaxed only after the paceman pleaded guilty and completed all conditions demanded by the panel which banned him in February 2011.
Amirs international ban expires on September 2 this year after which the PCB will decide on his comeback to the national team.
Amir had taken 22 wickets in the four matches prior to the final of the Patrons Trophy, which is one level below first-class.
