Mohammed Amir made his debut for Pakistan aged just 19 against Sri Lanka, in both the test and the ODI formats. The young Amir was an instant revelation as he picked wickets in heaps each time he stepped on the cricket field. With 51 wickets in 14 tests and 25 of them in 15 ODIs Amir was the next ‘big thing’ in world fast bowling until his career was cut short temporarily due to unfortunate events. He was having a phenomenal test series on the field on Pakistan’s tour of England in 2010 against Australia and England where he picked a phenomenal 19 wickets in 4 test matches. However, Amir was subsequently banned from all forms of cricket in February 2011, for his spot-fixing ‘no balls’ on that tour of England and the young sensation played no further international cricket since. However aged just 25, Amir has been cleared to play any form of cricket in September 2015 and is close to an international comeback into the Pakistani side in the near future, with the likes of Wasim Akram calling for his selection into the senior side.
