Player Profile

Mohammad Amir, one of Pakistan's brightest prospects burst into the cricketing scene in 2007/08. He was picked out as a special talent by his idol Wasim Akram long before he went on the tour to England with the Pakistan Under-19 side. By 2010 Amir emerged as one of the best fast bowlers to be produced by Pakistan.

In 2009, Amir impressed on the domestic circuit with his pace and ability to swing the ball both ways, when he played for National Bank of Pakistan. In his debut season he picked up a total of 55 wickets and that earned him a call-up into the Pakistan national side for the World Twenty20 in 2009. He announced his arrival, bowling with discipline, pace and accuracy. Amir played a crucial role in Pakistan's T20 World Cup campaign where he held his nerve to bowl several last overs to give Pakistan crucial wins. He carried his good form into the ODIs picking up a career best 4/28 against Sri Lanka and then went on to bowl brilliantly in the Champions Trophy. Amir made an impressive start to his Test career picking up six scalps.

Following on tours to New Zealand, Australia and England he continued his good form and bowled with heart. That helped him grow as a mature bowler and during Pakistan's tour to England he became the youngest bowler to reach 50 wickets in Test cricket.

In 2011 he was handed a five-year ban by the ICC for his involvement in the spot-fixing controversy.
