"We have actually used Mohammad Amir (incident) at a very early stage.

Amir was given a chance to resurrect his interrupted international career with the Pakistan team after serving a three-month prison sentence for his role in the 2010 spot-fixing episode.
He made a return to international cricket on January 15 following a five-year ban for Pakistan against New Zealand in the opening Twenty20 International in Auckland.
