The Pakistan Cricket Board has some questions, related to spot-fixing scandal, ready for disgraced fast bowler Muhammad Amir when he returns home on Sunday.

Amir, 19, is scheduled to return to Lahore tomorrow morning for the first time since he was jailed by a British court last year in October.

The court jailed the youngster for six months and also handed out jail terms to his former teammates Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif.

Amir was released from the young offenders institution earlier this month after serving three months in jail but is still under a five year ban from the ICC.

"We will be meeting with Amir when he returns home. We want to have a face to face talk with him on different issues relating to the spot-fixing scandal," PCB Chief operating officer Subhan Ahmad told PTI.

"He has not been very honest with us so we have a few questions for him. But at the same time we want him to undergo rehabilitation and learn from his mistakes."

Ahmad, however, made it clear that there would be no leniency shown to Amir as far as his five year ban by the International Cricket Council was concerned.

"He will have to follow all the terms and conditions of the ban which means he can't take part in any cricket related activity or even use our facilities," he said.
