The first match of the Bangladesh Premier League saw a scintillating bowling performance from Pakistani pacer Mohammad Aamir. Aamir, despite being out of competitive cricket for over 5 years, bowled with a lot of zeal, energy and passion. It seemed that he had left all the disheartening thoughts behind him, and lived in the present. Aamir produced a lethal spell for his side and ended the game with 4 brilliant wickets.
He was extremely accurate and the line and lengths he bowled made it clear that he surely belonged at the international level. The very first over which Aamir bowled was a maiden to West Indian opener Lendl Simmons, who seemed to be out of sorts against the left arm pacer. After bowling tightly to Simmons, Aamir finally had the better of him, as he was caught at mid-off.
But Aamir’s best wicket undoubtedly was that of Pakistan’s test skipper Misbah Ul Haq. During the second last over, it seemed that Misbah would easily take his team past the finish line. But Aamir produced a jaw-dropping yorker to rip apart the stumps. It was an unplayable yorker, executed with utmost perfection.
Below, is the video of Aamir’s brilliant 4 wicket haul in the first game of the Bangladesh Premier League.
