Six years ago Mohammad Amir committed perhaps the worst crime in cricket, but the 24-year old has made a decent comeback to Test cricket in the first Test of the first Pakistan’s tour of England since the 2010 spot-fixing controversy. It couldn’t have been any more perfect and certainly, there was no way that Amir’s comeback could have been consummated any better than bowling at Lord’s.
Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Amir made Test comeback in 2016 since 2010 spot-fixing scandal at the Lord’s. In his first Test at the Lord’s, he bagged three wickets. Pakistan won the first Test of the England series by 75 runs.
In the second Test at Old Trafford which has started today, Mohammad Amir castled Alex Hales with a Yorker.
After the first Test Pakistan captain, Misbah-ul-Haq praised Amir. At Old Trafford, Misbah handed the ball to Amir in the first over of the match. Amir kept the faith in captain and delivered an early breakthrough.
Amir didn’t have to say much as bowled lightning fast deliveries. His delivery made England opener Alex Hales uncomfortable.
Hales’ front foot didn’t move when Amir bowled a fast Yorker.
Hales scored 10 before Amir bowled him neck and crop.
