Pakistan one-day captain Azhar Ali and batsman Mohammad Hafeez have boycotted a training stay in criticism during a inclusion of bowler Mohammad Amir.

Amir, 23, was jailed for his partial in a spot-fixing fraud during a 2010 Test array in England and criminialized from cricket for 5 years, though returned to domestic movement in September.

“Hafeez and we can’t accept Amir’s participation in a camp,” Azhar said.

Pakistan play 3 ODIs and 3 T20s in New Zealand in January.

Hafeez, a former captain in a T20 format, has formerly pronounced he “can’t share a sauce room with someone who harm my country’s integrity”.

He is accepted to have told conduct manager Waqar Younis he will not attend any partial of a stay during that Amir is present.

The Pakistan Cricket Board pronounced it was attempting to remonstrate Azhar and Hafeez to recur their stance.

Amir, afterwards 18, pleaded guilty to bowling no-balls during pre-arranged times during Pakistan’s fourth Test opposite England during Lord’s in 2010.

He served half of a six-month jail term, while team-mates Mohammad Asif and captain Salman Butt served 6 and 7 months respectively.

Former England batsman Geoffrey Boycott pronounced Amir, Asif and Butt should be “given a second chance”.

Speaking to, a 75-year-old said: “Give them a correct chance, get fit, play good and if they are still good adequate afterwards give them a possibility in a Pakistan team.

“Nobody should reason anything against, or favour, any of a 3 in any way.”
