Pakistan’s gun pacer Mohammad Amir has continued to impress in England during his stint with Essex. After a commendable effort in the first-class game, the skillful cricketer produced a fantastic bowling performance in the Vitality Blast to help Essex pull off their third victory of the 20-over domestic tournament.
Winning the toss, Sussex decided to bowl first and did pretty well to restrict Essex within 168 runs. However, Amir had no plans to allow his team to lose another contest. In a sensational bowling effort, the 27-year old showed his prowess by claiming 4 crucial wickets giving away only 29 runs.
Amir first removed openers early and then came back strongly in his second spell to stop the South Group’s table toppers from registering their 7th win of the competition. While Dan Lawrence flew away with the player of the match award, it is hard to ignore the vital contribution of the Gujjar Khan born player. Amir is focused to continue his good work and help Essex finish the tournament well.
