Karachi: Pakistan's banned pace bowler Mohammad Amir has put his acting career on hold after the country's cricket governing body PCB said that it would be requesting the ICC to allow the tainted player to play domestic cricket before his ban ends in August 2015.

"For me cricket has always been the top priority. And now due to the efforts of the PCB it appears I might finally get a chance to get back into cricket very soon," Amir told PTI on Monday.

"For now I have postponed plans to act in the film offered to me, "Blind Love" and I just want to focus on preparing myself for the comeback to first class cricket," he added.
