Shukriya Pakistan

MANCHESTER: Despite of Yasir Shah’s heroics at Lord’s, the bowler who is in the center of all the attention is Mohammad Amir.

The young left-arm pacer is hungry to prove his mettle once again in test cricket and all fired up after returning from a five-year long ban for being involved in sport fixing.

As anticipated earlier, English crowd is not the friendliest one with the 24-year old. When Mohammad Amir ran in to bowl at Old Trafford, there were chants of ‘no-ball’ from the stands trying to haunt the talented fast bowler with the Lord’s incident from 2010.

But, Mohammad Amir did what he does the best, he ran in hard and bowled the English skipper, who was well-settled at a score of 105 runs just before tea.

Then there was the signature celebration from Mohammad Amir running fiercely with arms spread like an aeroplane and there was stunned silence in the crowd.

Amir, earlier in the day, clean bowled English opener Alex Hales as well with a big booming in-swinging delivery.
