Pakistan's Mohammad Amir makes historic record in Bangladesh Premier League
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's Mohammad Amir makes historic record in Bangladesh Premier League.
Pakistan left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir wreaked havoc with a six-fer on Monday, to help Khulna Tigers qualify for the final by registering a 27-run victory over Rajshahi Royals in the ongoing season of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
While defending a target of 159, Amir struck in the first over of Royals inning as he clean bowled wicketkeeper-batsman Liton Das for 2 runs.
Left-arm pacer then returned in his second over to remove the other opener Atif Hossain and middle-order batsman Alok Kapali.
However, the most important wicket for the 27-year-old came in the shape of Andre Russell, as the all-rounder was caught for a duck by Rilee Rossouw in Amir’s third over, to leave the Royals inning reeling at 23 for 5.
Pakistan’s veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik resurrected Royals innings with his blistering 80-run knock.
