KARACHI: Tainted Test pacer Mohammad Aamir will play competitive cricket after four-and-a-half-years when he represents Omar Associates in the Patron’s Trophy Grade II which will start from March 9.
Omar Associates on Wednesday unveiled their squad for the vital assignment which carries the 22-year old Gujjar Khan-born Aamir.

An official of Omar Associates told this correspondent that Aamir was fit and would play in the event.
Omar Associates, who will be led by Hafiz Saad Nasim, face Army in their opener on March 9 at the Army Ground in Rawalpindi.
The team will leave for Rawalpindi on Thursday (today).
