Mohammad Amir has always been one of the most talented bowlers in world cricket, ever since making his debut in 2009 against Sri Lanka in Galle. The left-arm fast bowler had to miss five years of his cricketing career due to his involvement in the spot-fixing scandal in England in 2010 and was also jailed for six months after being found guilty. However, he made a triumphant return to the game, helping Pakistan win their maiden ICC champions trophy title in 2017 with a scintillating performance in finals against India.
Since his return to the game, Amir has received back the same respect from fans and his peers for his bowling abilities like before. However, he has found it hard to reach the same peaks he had during his initial period back in 2009-10.
His penetration with the ball has become less and there was a period where he was dropped from the team due to poor returns. But he is still considered to be one of the most potent bowlers in world cricket. Amir has now restricted himself to the white-ball cricket for the Men in Green and for the franchise T20 tournaments around the world.
Finch says Amir the toughest Pakistani bowler he has faced during a Q&A session
This fact was verified by Australian limited-overs captain Aaron Finch during a Q&A session on Twitter. During the session, Finch was answering queries from many of his fans. One such fan asked Finch which was the toughest Pakistani bowler he has ever faced. “Most Toughest Bowler you have ever faced from Pakistan???”, the fan asked. To this, the Australia captain replied, “@iamamirofficial is always tough to face!”

Meanwhile, Wasim Akram had criticized Mohammad Amir’s decision to retire from Test cricket before the Australia series. Akram felt that Amir should have played this series at least given the inexperience of bowling attack that was picked for the away series down under.
The legendary pacer also felt that the time and effort invested by Pakistan management in bringing Amir back into international cricket was wasted when Amir decided to prolong his limited-overs career by saying goodbye to red-ball cricket at the age of 27.
