Caribbean Premier League (CPL) team Barbados Tridents signed a high-profile name on Tuesday as they roped in former Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir for the 2021 season which will be played from August 28 to September 19 in St. Kitts.

Amir, who retired from international cricket at the age of 28 in December 2020, has never featured in the CPL and last played professional cricket in March for Karachi Kings in the postponed Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021.

The left-arm pacer has a superb record in the shortest format having picked 220 wickets from 190 T20s at an average of just 22.50 with a six-wicket haul and a couple of five-fors.

"The Barbados Tridents have secured the services of Pakistani left-arm seamer Mohammad Amir. With 220 T20 wickets to his name, 59 of them coming in international matches, Amir has a huge amount of experience and a track record of success across the globe," CPL said in a statement.

Amir, who stepped away from international cricket after a fall-out with Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis, sounded excited for the "new challenge" after signing for Barbados.

"Looking forward for the new challenge," Amir tweeted after the Tridents made the announcement official on social media.
