Mohammad Amir may have not played a lot against arch-rivals India but in whatever chances he has got to face the Men in Blue, the left-handed fast bowler has done enough to make his presence felt. Amir, unfortunately, made his debut at a time when Indo-Pak relations started to get deteriorated post the 2008 26-11 Mumbai terror attacks.

Mohammad Amir Picks Rohit Sharma As One Batsman He Is Always Keen To Dismiss

Since those dastardly terror attacks in Mumbai, India called-off their bilateral relations against Pakistan and post that, the arch-rivals have played just one bilateral series [in 2012-13] which Amir missed due to his five-year spot-fixing ban. Amir played his debut game against India during the 2009 Champions Trophy and the prodigiously talented bowler made his presence felt by dismissing Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar.

Amir played his next game against India after a gap of seven years during the 2016 Asia Cup where he wreaked havoc against the famed Indian top-order including vice-captain Rohit Sharma. In-fact Amir went on to dismiss Rohit in three of his first four outings post his spot-fixing ban [2016 Asia Cup, 2016 T20 WC & 2017 Champions Trophy].

And, so it came as a little surprise when Amir named Rohit Sharma as the batsman that he is always keen to discuss. The left-arm pacer was asked the same by veteran journalist Saj Sadiq.

“Who is the batsman that you are always keen to dismiss?” Sadiq asked.

 “There are lots, but that has to be Rohit Sharma”- Amir replied.
