This setback is not new to Amir as he has been in the limelight due to concerns regarding his involvement in spot-fixing, which led to brief imprisonment in the United Kingdom.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had earlier announced the 18-member squad for seven games that are scheduled to take place between May 10 and May 30. This tour serves as their final set of fixtures ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024, jointly hosted by West Indies and the USA.
