Mohammad Amir two wickets for Essex in County match 2017

Mohammad Amir continues to impress the fans in the English County championship. He is currently playing the limited overs game in whites. The Essex county bowler is playing both the NatWest T20 blast as well as the county champions for the Essex unit. In the ongoing game so far he has taken two wickets.

It just took Mohammad Amir three overs to produce two wickets for this team. He has been on fire since the day he played his first game for the Essex County. This is the maiden appearance for Amir in the English county. He never played this medium of cricket in the past.

Now certainly all this will help him get more experience in the international cricket. When Amir joined Essex he said that he wants to groom his bowling talent here in England. He said that this is the perfect opportunity for him and for this reason he did not go with any CPL franchise.

Amir was offered some really handsome contracts from the CPL franchises. The left arm pacer did not take any one of them. He wanted County cricket and as a result he signed a deal with the Essex unit. Now he is playing for them in England and so far he has been exceptional.

Amir today took two wickets thanks to his swing bowling. With the new ball under England conditions Mohammad Amir is absolutely unplayable. He swings the ball both ways and that makes him a really tough opponent to bat against. The first batsman was caught lbw here.

He was deep in his crease trying to counter the swing with this way. The ball hit the off stump line and then came back into the left hander. The movement was enough to beat the bat and the moment the ball hit the pads it was looking a very close call. The umpire raised his finger after a second.

The next wicket came to a bowled out. This right handed batsman was given another inswing. The ball was bowled on the middle and off stump line and from there it came back in to the right hander. The gap was there between the bat and pad and Amir exploited this gap. The ball went through this gap and hit the castle down.

Mohammad Amir is definitely getting a lot of confidence with the wickets he is taking. For a bowler wickets means a lot. This is like a tonic to him which makes him hungry for better performances. This is the prime focus of a bowler to get wickets. Mohammad Amir is definitely a good induction in the Essex unit. He has given a lot of strength to the bowling line of Essex.
