Mohammad Amir

6-84

vs EnglandBack to boards

Mohammad Amir secured his first spot on the Lord’s Honours Boards when he took six wickets for 84 runs in the summer of 2010.

In a match more memorable for the spot-fixing scandal that followed it, an 18-year-old Amir was on fine form, ripping through the England attack to take six wickets.

Amir’s pace got the better of Alastair Cook, Kevin Pietersen, Paul Collingwood, Eoin Morgan, Matt Prior and Graeme Swann, as he secured his six-wicket despite England getting a total of 446 all out.

Pakistan scored 74 all out in reply, before only adding 147 in their second innings as the controversial match overshadowed Amir’s performance and England’s innings and 225 run victory.
