As the first over finished, Amir was all smiles after being appreciated by his captain and teammates. It was a fantastic over from the left hander to start the show for Vikings once again. Three times in a row for Amir now.
As the second started his fans were spelling something coming up. It didn’t happen for them on the first five balls. In fact das who played the whole over hit Amir for a four as well in the first five balls.
This time Das maneuvered himself and walked across his stumps to nudge one off his pads and into the deep fine leg fence to get his second four from Amir. The first one was an edge in Amir’s first over.
However Amir knew what to bowl at him and he changed his line and length completely on the final ball of the second over.
This time it was much faster in pacer and came right towards the face of Das. He had no option left and went for a big pull shot. The ball hit the edge of the bat, went high in the air and a neat catch was taken by Zia on the leg side.
Amir takes his second and finishes up his first spell with 2 for 9. Another fantastic piece of fast bowling from the left arm pacer, Amir is really delivering here.
The way he has bowled till so far gives a glimpse of the great Wasim Akram who is supporting his comeback in the national side.
