Mohammed Amir discloses his comfort levels in his duels with the Indian batting duo
Mohammed Amir, the talented but much-maligned Pakistan left-arm fast bowler has recently retired from international cricket. At a young age of 28. He was regarded as a prodigy in his early days and the next Wasim Akram but his match-fixing involvements in the 2010 England series, dented his promising career. He was allowed to play for Pakistan after serving a 5-year ban. However, he had an occasional brilliant run, finally ending with 119 wickets in 36 tests, 81 wickets in 61 ODIs and 59 wickets from 50 T20Is.
Mohammed Amir discloses his comfort levels in his duels with the Indian batting duo.. Amir was recently asked about his duels with Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. With reference to his highly skilled bowling spell in the Champions trophy final of 2017 which won the match for Pakistan and he mentioned that he enjoyed his duels with the Indian duo, particularly Kohli who is a fantastic batsman capable of winning games. However, he added that he did not find it difficult bowling to Rohit or Kohli.
Amir went on to add while comparing the two batters, that he found bowling to Rohit more easier. As he struggled to both inswingers and outswingers at the start of his innings.
“I haven’t found it tough bowling to either. In fact, I find it easy to bowl to Rohit. I feel that I can get him out both ways. He struggles against the in-swinger from a left-armer and as well as against the ball that goes away early on. I may say that I find bowling to Virat slightly tougher because he revels in pressure situations. But otherwise, I’ve never found it difficult bowling to either of the two,” Amir explained
