Karachi: Banned Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir says like everybody he should also get a second chance to resurrect his international cricket career which abruptly ended in August 2010 following a spot-fixing scandal.




21 years old Amir was banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) tribunal in February 2011 for five years in the spot-fixing scandal along with the then Pakistan skipper Salman Butt and fellow paceman Mohammad Asif after they were found guilty of bowling deliberate no-balls in return for money during the fourth and final Test against England at Lord's.

“I have learnt harsh lessons and am anxious to make amends. Everyone gets a second chance in life and I want to it too. My biggest desire is to come back with my head held high. Whatever had happened in 2010 has gone by. What I did then was terrible. I was too young then to realise the repercussions of spot-fixing which destroyed my life.” said Amir.
