Mohammad Amir glorious shot, 1st test Australia
Mohammad Amir today showed that he has become a genuine all-rounder for Pakistan. He bowls well as we have all seen now. Today he hit 48 runs with the bat. It was sad to see him not getting to his maiden test fifty. Amir played superb knock.
One of his shots was referred as the best one of the night by Australia commentator Mark Nicholas. Amir played this drive against Bird. The ball was pitched up and straight. It was a length ball and Amir just showed it the middle of his beautiful bat.
Amir was right behind the line of the ball. The ball did not make any movement or what so ever and hit the middle of his bat. It went right in between Asad Shafiq and the stumps and raced away towards the boundary line. Warner gave it a chase but could not reach it.
Amir batted superbly. He was put under pressure by Starc and the two had a heated exchange of words as well. But Amir kept his motion. He hit 5 fours in his innings. Pakistan did a great job today. They have sent Australia a clear message that they will not go down easily. They will fight till the last wicket.
