Pakistan’s fast bowler Mohammad Amir emerged as a shining start in World Cup match against Australia, by picking up a career-best 5 wickets for just 30 runs. His carrier’s best bowling pulled out Pakistan out of trouble versus Australia as the Kangaroos went from 146/0 in the 23rd over to 307 all out in the 49th over.
Amir’s figures of 5-30 are the best by a Pakistan in a World Cup since Wasim Akram’s 5-28 against Namibia in 2003. Amir conceded just one boundary in his 10 overs spell and none off his last 41 balls. 10-2-30-5 is also the most economical ten-over spell by a Pakistan pacer in four years.
While talking about this glorious achievement he said, “We didn’t bowl how we were supposed to be bowling in first 15 overs otherwise we would have restricted Australia earlier. I realised that after my first over where I had to ball and I bowled according to that”.
“I am happy that after ten years of my international debut I have taken my first five-fer, but I would’ve been more happy and joyous if Pakistan had won the game today,” he said. “We have to win all the games from here and if we stay positive then I am sure we will be able to achieve that,” he said.
