It was shocking for everyone, when Pakistan’s emerging speedster, Mohammad Amir got caught in spot fixing scandal during the Lord’s Test match against England in 2010.
Before spot fixing scandal, the way the young pacer, who was born in Punjab’s rural area, Gujjar Khan, had been upsetting the world’s best batsmen with his smart bowling and sizzling bouncers.
People started rating the 19-year-old fast bowler with Pakistan’s legendary pacer, Wasim Akram, considering Amir’s outstanding talent.
However, unfortunately, he got caught in spot fixing scandal, which led Pakistan to lose probably one of the ever best fast bowlers, as International Cricket Council banned him to play cricket for five years.
Meanwhile, the British court also sent him jail for six months following it found Amir Guility in spot fixing accusation.
The way Pakistan’s skipper claimed that they would not allow Sachin to score century also increased the hype of the match.
The Indian media slammed the star all-rounder’s statement, and started highlighting the Pakistan’s weakness to shatter the side’s confidence.
In the meantime, Pakistan successfully restricted the master batsman to smash his 100th hundred despite losing the match by 29 runs.
Here is one interesting factor, since Afridi and his men stopped the world’s greatest batsman to complete the century of his centuries, he has not scored it yet, as he has been struggling to regain his form.
