Yet nothing in cricket in 2015 is likely to be more fascinating than Mohammad Aamer's pursuit of redemption.
The game has had nothing quite like it before - a player returning from a long ban for spot-fixing at an age where he can still hope to have a long international career. Aamer, a fast bowler, will be a month short of his 23rd birthday on March 9, when he is scheduled to return to organized cricket with the Omar Associates team in Karachi, Pakistan. "We have signed Aamer to play for our team in Grade II, as we think that everybody deserves a second chance in life and career," said Nadeem Omar, director of Omar Associates. Aamer remains ineligible for international cricket until September 2, when the five-year ban imposed by the International Cricket Council for spot-fixing - committed during Pakistan's tour of England in 2010 - expires. Every step taken by Aamer will be scrutinized in terms of the likelihood of his returning to the highest levels of cricket. But Shaharyar Khan, president of the PCB., has denied suggestions that his body is fast-tracking Aamer's return. "In the period before his ban expires - and even after that - Aamer will be constantly monitored on and off the field," said Khan. In 2010, Aamer was the most junior member of a hierarchical locker room. He was caught overstepping the bowling mark on pre-agreed deliveries so that bettors could place money on their being ruled "no balls," by a News of the World reporter whose methods are now under legal scrutiny. The newspaper was closed in 2011 over its involvement in Britain's phone-tapping scandals. All three players served time in jail in Britain, although only Aamer admitted his guilt; Asif and Butt denied theirs. "Don't forget that Aamer will have been out of international cricket for five years. That's more than half a career." In an interview, Aamer seemed smarter than the innocent villager portrayed by some commentators, but at the same time, likeable and grounded. Nasser Hussain, the former England captain, may have been speaking for many when he said: "Please don't let it be the kid. A social worker, Faiz-ul-Haq Hasan, has brought an action in the Sindh High Court demanding that Aamer be banned for life. "Aamer stained the image of the country," said Hasan. "He is a proven fixer and will do it again if he is allowed to play again." The court is scheduled to hear that case on February 16, but it seems most likely that Aamer will get the wish he expressed in January 2014 when he was interviewed for "Death of a Gentleman," an independent documentary about the future of cricket.

Aamer is national asset: PCB chairman Karachi: PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf on Thursday backed disgraced paceman Mohammad Aamer by declaring him a national asset and hinted that the Board may help the young fast bowler in returning to international fold. Interestingly, Geo News said that Aamer would not appeal against the five-year ban imposed on him by the ICC, to the Court of Arbitration for Sports in Switzerland. Quoting the ICC the channel said Aamer had sent in writing to the ICC that he had no intentions of pushing his appeal with the CAS. These latest developments indicate that Aamer might in the near future get some support from the PCB in requesting the ICC to reduce his ban period. "Apparently Aamer has been advised that if he doesn't pursue his appeal he might get some reprieve in future and the PCB will help him out in this," one source said. Aamer since returning to Lahore after spending three months in a young offenders institution in the United Kingdom for his spot-fixing role, has remained shut in his house with his lawyer, Sajida Malik also accompanying him from London.

Karachi, Pakistan : Pakistan's disgraced paceman Mohammed Aamer is looking forward to returning to cricket "as and when possible", the psychologist helping to rehabilitate his career said Monday.
In the first of several counselling sessions Maqbool Babri, who was hired by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to counsel Aamer, said his client appeared "positive and relaxed" despite his five-year ban from the game for cheating. Babri said Aamer was upbeat in the first of eight to 10 sessions. "I am very surprised that he was very positive and relaxed during the first session with me on Saturday," Babri told AFP. "I think that Aamer's lawyer was a positive influence on him and has guided him well." Before the scandal, Aamer was regarded as the hottest new international talent due to the lethal left-arm pace bowling which likened him to Pakistan former great Wasim Akram. Babri said Aamer believes he belongs in the cricketing world. "Aamer realises that cricket is his profession and he wants to return to the game as and when possible, and during the session we moved towards enlightment," he said. "I think he realises that he made a mistake... and since he is very passionate about his cricket I have to make him ready for that," Babri added. Aamer has decided not to appeal his ICC ban. He was released from prison in February.
