Mohammad Amir, a former Pakistani bowler, has made news for his celebrations during the current eighth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The left-arm pacer was injured earlier in the competition and missed a few critical games, but in their seventh encounter of the season against Peshawar Zalmi, he made a strong recovery.
The 30-year-old pacer demolished the Babar Azam-led team’s top order in his maiden spell, limiting one of the PSL’s most reliable batting teams to just 2/3 with a record-breaking performance.
The former bowler restricted the opposition to 197 at the end of the innings with his four-over session, finishing with 4 for 26, but his efforts were in vain when Peshawar Zalmi put on an outstanding bowling performance.
Mohammad Amir celebrated his historic performance with a cake that had the numbers for his four-over period engraved on it, despite the fact that his team lost the game by a score of 24-runs.
Cricket fans were quick to criticise the bowler for his selfishness after the incident, which did not sit well with them.
