Mohammad Amir’s sizzling spells of pace bowling have been the sole silver lining in Pakistan’s abysmal World Cup campaign so far. Getting the ball to swing extravagantly on pitches producing high-scoring encounters, Amir has been in tremendous form as he currently leads the bowling charts of the tournament jointly with Mitchell Starc.
Impressed by Amir’s astonishing rise in the last few games, former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly praised the left-arm pacer and mentioned that his bowling heroics is what one expects from Pakistan, which is renowned for unleashing quality fast bowling talent.
“In this World Cup team, Mohammad Amir was nowhere in the picture. They dropped him, he comes back and ends up being the leading fast bowler in the squad. That's what you get from a side like Pakistan,” Ganguly said.
