LAHORE (Web Desk) – The Lahore High Court (LHC) has declared Mohammad Amir eligible for New Zealand series.

As per details, the court heard a petition regarding player’s selection in upcoming New Zealand series. The court dismissed the plea and stated that Amir is eligible for representing the country at international level.

Amir, along with Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif, was banned after a spot-fixing scandal on the 2010 tour of England. The trio were charged for accepting illegal money in return for deliberate no-balls during the Lord s Test against England.

The three players were also jailed by a UK court in 2011. But the International Cricket Council in September this year allowed them to return to international cricket.
