Former Pakistan left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir might have retired from international cricket but his performance in the Abu Dhabi T10 league has shown that there is enough fuel left in his tank to burn an entire batting order. Mohammad Amir bamboozled everyone with his impeccable display taking a four-wicket haul against the Chennai Braves with three of them coming in his first over.
Mohammad Amir picked up four wickets in just two overs and gave only seven runs in his spell against the Chennai Braves. The New York strikers were able to restrict the Chennai Braves on a meager score of 75/9. Amir led the bowling attack and picked up four wickets, including one run out, in his first over and put pressure on the opposition.
New York Strikers extended their winning streak to five games in the competition after this win. They stand at the top of the points table with 10 points in six matches.

Mohammad Amir came to bowl in the second over of the innings and immediately ran out opener Kobe Herft for a duck. He then took the wicket of the other opener George Munsey sending him back for a score of six runs. Amir finished the over after removing the Lankan duo of Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Charith Asalanka to punch a four-wicket maiden in a T10 match. However, he came back in the eighth over to remove Jason Roy and complete his four-fer.
The New York Strikers did not start the chase suspiciously as they lost both their openers on a golden duck but then Muhammad Waseem and Mark Deyal stabilized the innings. It was looking like the Chennai Braves were up for a fight and they would defend their total of 75.
Later, Asif Ali produced a commendable knock of an unbeaten 23 off 13 balls to take New York Strikers home with a convincing win. The Kieron Pollard-led side scored the winning runs with nine balls in hand. Mohammad Amir got the Player of the Match for his impeccable figures of 4/7 in two overs. Meanwhile, the defeat left the Chennai Braves anguished in the seventh position.
